Aaliyah + parents settle negligence lawsuit ,
Diane and Michael Haughton, parents of late singer-actress Aaliyah, have reached an undisclosed settlement in a lawsuit alleging that negligence and recklessness caused the plane crash that killed their daughter. The lawsuit was filed against Blackhawk International Airways Corp., owners Skystream Inc. and Gilbert Chacon, and the company that chartered the plane, Atlantic Flight Group. Aaliyah and eight others died in August 2001 when their twin-engine Cessna 402B crashed shortly after takeoff in the Bahamas, where they had been shooting a video for the song "Rock The Boat." Investigators have reported the plane was also at least 700 pounds overweight and was also only certified to carry up to eight persons, including the pilot, and not the nine who were aboard, along with gear and various equipment. Fans of Aaliyah honored the fallen star last month on August 25 with a prayer service and candlelight vigil at Ferncliff cemetery in Westchester County, New York. The event marked the second anniversary of the singer's death. In addition, the singer's label, Blackground Records, released a new single, "Don't Know What To Tell Ya," to coincide with the anniversary. The song is the latest single from Aaliyah's posthumous release, I Care 4 U.

Amy winehouse cause of death ,
British retro-soul singer Amy Jade Winehouse was found dead in her home in Camden, north London on , Saturday, July 23, 2011. This was really a shocking news as she was only 27-year-old. Her death was confirmed by the Metropolitan Police, after the London Ambulance Service was called to the singer’s flat just before 4pm Saturday BST. A body, believed to be that of singer Amy Winehouse, is removed from her home following her death. The cause of death is as yet unknown but the Grammy Award winner Amy Winehouse, the soul-jazz diva whose self-destructive habits overshadowed a distinctive musical talent, had checked out of a treatment center a month ago.A really few artists summed up their own career in a single song and a single line as well as Amy Winehouse.”They tried to make me go to rehab,” she sang on her world-conquering 2006 single, “Rehab.” ”I said ‘No, no no.’” Occasionally, she said yes, but to no avail: repeated stints in hospitals and clinics couldn’t stop alcohol and drugs scuttling the career of a singer whose distinctive voice, rich mix of influences and heart-on-her sleeve sensibility seemed to promise great things.
In her short lifetime, Winehouse too often made headlines because of drug and alcohol abuse, eating disorders, destructive relationships and abortive performances. But it’s her small but powerful body of recorded music that will be her legacy.
The singer was found dead Saturday by ambulance crews called to her home in north London’s Camden area, a youth-culture mecca known for its music scene, its pubs and the availability of illegal drugs. The London Ambulance Service said Winehouse had died before crews arrived at the house in leafy Camden Square. The cause of death was not immediately known.
The singer’s body was taken from her home by private ambulance to a London mortuary where post-mortem examinations were to be carried out either Sunday or Monday. Police said in a statement no arrests had been made in connection with her death.
It was not a complete surprise, but the news was still a huge shock for millions around the world. The size of Winehouse’s appeal was reflected in the extraordinary range of people paying tribute as they heard the news, from Demi Moore, who tweeted “Truly sad news … May her troubled soul find peace” to chef Jamie Oliver, who wrote “such a waste, raw talent” on the social networking site.
