Teena Marie, an award-winning singer-songwriter known for her R&B
performances, has died, her manager said Sunday. The performer was 54.
Marie was found dead by her daughter after apparently dying in her sleep,
manager Mike Gardner said.
Teena Marie will be missed. She was a genuine talent and had the most beautiful voice. I love you Teena!
Ruffnutt if you know nothing about her or have nothing intelligent to say, why do you even bother to comment?
A Beautiful woman with a equally beautiful voice! Her music is so inspiring, so soulful...She will be greatly missed!! Her and Rick are up in heaven united again! R.I.P. Lady T
Gone too soon. Rick James and now Teena Marie. It is a sad day for R & B music.

I can't believe Teena is gone. She was my all time favorite R&B singer. She had soul that touched you in every song that she ever sang. I have almost all of her music. Albums, CD's and cassette tapes. She is and will always be a legend. She will be missed. Rest in peace Teena!!!!!!
What a sad, sad day. We lost James Brown and Eartha Kitt at Christmas years ago as well. A joyous season made bittersweet with this news. Such a talented and wonderful creature. R&B's honorary 'White Sista'. R.I.P. Teena Marie. One more great voice added to the heavenly choir.
We will miss you lady T – gone too soon!
