After Aaliyah’s death, Haughton dedicated his sister’s last film Queen of the Damned and even attended the 2001 MTV Video Music Awards to pay her tribute. A month after the crash, the singer was supposed to hold a benefit concert with Seal– Instead, her brother presented a $41,000 check for breast cancer treatment and research, and Seal, on the other hand, performed a tribute to Aaliyah. 

In 2021, Aaliyah’s estate, run in part by Rashad, denounced Blackground Records for rereleasing Aaliyah’s album One in a Million and other recorded works on physical, digital, and streaming services. He stated that the record company released Aaliyah’s music without transparency or full accounting to the estate.

Rashad Houghton’s Biography

Big brother to late artist Aaliyah Rashad Houghton was born on August 6, 1977, in Brooklyn, almost two years after his sister’s birth. He finished his studies at Hofstra University and worked on Aaliyah’s music video 4 Page Letter right after graduating.

The weight of his sister’s loss on the 25th of August, 2001, was already a heavy burden; unfortunately, life isn’t fair following his father’s death in November 2021. He lost his father—Michael Houghton, to kidney disease. His body is buried next to his daughter Aaliyah at Hartsdale, Westchester County.

Even after the tragic loss of Aaliyah, her music and legacy are very much alive until this day. Her family looked over her estate and music on her behalf and released her music on streaming platforms two decades after her demise. 

In 2018, Rashad also helped create an Aaliyah-inspired makeup line by M.A.C to tribute to the late singer. As petitioned by the fans, M.A.C hearkened their requests and made the collaboration happen since the cosmetic company was used by Aaliyah back in the days.
