Janet Jackson was without a doubt one of Aaliyah’s biggest musical influences, so it’s beautiful to see the legendary performer remember the fallen star on the 14th anniversary of her death.

Jackson and Aaliyah were planning to collaborate together musically before Aaliyah’s untimely death August 25, 2001.

Jackson wrote a brief but touching handwritten letter to Aaliyah and shared with her millions of followers on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

Jackson captioned her post, “I know u r there shining down on me. ‪#‎ConversationsInACafe‬.”

“What I shared with u ever sacred everlasting N it’s pure + it will endure
I love u Aaliyah
