Written by . Published: August 12 2011

Missy Elliott, Timbaland and Kelly Rowland have shared their memories of late R+B singer Aaliyah as part of a TV special to commemorate the 10 year anniversary of her death.

The Try Again star died in a plane crash in the Bahamas on 25 August, 2001. She was just 22.

Her close pals and collaborators Elliott and producer Timbaland were among the mourners at the singer's funeral and now they have opened up about their tragic loss in the tribute Aaliyah: One in a Million.

Speaking last year (10), Elliott revealed she still thinks about Aaliyah "every day".

Patti LaBelle and former Destiny's Child star Kelly Rowland are also among the stars featured in the TV tribute, which will air on the BET network later this month (Aug11).
