Soul Clap: Kenyon Dixon covers Aaliyah’s “One in a Million”


Every year on the date that we lost Aaliyah, the “Babygirl” of R&B, there is an outpouring of love in remembrance of her, her music and her beautiful spirit. ¬†Yesterday, on the 14th anniversary of her premature passing, super talented singer/songwriter Kenyon Dixon brought attention to his recent cover of Aaliyah’s hit, “One In A Million.”

Kenyon’s vocal arrangements on the cover did her classic justice while paying due respect to an artist who continues to be an inspiration to many.

Listen up to Kenyon Dixon rendition of “One In A Million.”

Continue to sleep in peace, Aaliyah.

Ayanna has always had a love for music, pen and paper. Since her young days of Whitney Houston being played in her Brooklyn brownstone and scribbling in her Lisa Frank diaries, her passion for the three have only grown. She followed her pen and paper and graduated from Penn State in 2011 with a degree in Print Journalism. Shortly after Ayanna began writing for Hipolitics, a site geared toward making social consciousness hip. She was also brought on board as the Reality Check blogger for Now, she's following the music. She currently owns her own R&B-focused blog "sharing dopeness" that her own ears love to hear.
