She was a class mate of mine from Venice High school class of 1974. I still cannot believe she's gone. she was at our 30th reunion and was great spirits. I still have the photos....she was the coolest....rest in peace.
Do you have photos posted somewhere? Teena was my idol. I was listening to her music last night at Christmas dinner. Her voice was an inspiration.
I'm 44 and have been listening to Teena since I was a teen....She is and was my Favorite female artist...I own all her music and had the privledge to have an autographed copy of her last cd "Congo Square." I am crying and broken hearted....Peace and blessings to her family and especially her daughter...If I am in this pain, I can only imagine what she is feeling now...Her music will live forever....too bad she never got that star on the Hollywood walk of fame...but in my heart she is a True Star and down to earth beautiful person....RIP Teena Marie...
