    This is incredibly sad! It seems like all of the forefathers (and mothers) of real, good soul music are passing away! Everyone we grew up on and influenced the industry in some way. May she rest in heavenly peace.

    Rest in peace Teena – you know you turned out Rick James EVERY concert! He could have put you in the third balcony with no mic and STILL you would out sing him! You rocked then, you're singing with the angels now...you GO Girl! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I guess GOD wanted her beautiful voice up there with the other magnificent singers. You'll be missed Lady T. I keep finding myself listening to "Young Love", one of her best songs if you ask me. R.I.P. Lady T!!!!!!!!!!

    Words fail me yet my heart & mind did one thing once it was confirmed. Teena helped me through life afflictions & perspective on life dubious stages. I just hope she gets recognition she deserved when she was living & definitely now since she's gone. One thing 4 sure, her music will ALWAYS LIVE. When Michael passed, I said my daughter will know him. She's 3 & the only music & videos she want 2 hear & watch is Michael. Likewise for Lady Tee. Rest well Teena.
