      You r so right, Beyonce will never ever match a real singer/artist as Teena Marie or the late Phyllis Hyman and Minnie Riperton. RIP to the true pioneers!!

      You all are so right, Teena Marie's beat and sound can not be matched and is top notch. I have admired and been listening to Teena Marie's music since I was a teen. I have her music downloaded on my computer.

    I was really dissapointed to hear this not to long ago this evening. I never fully understood why she was on Unsung because even though she didn't receive a lot of acclaim, I felt she was one of the greatest female R&B singers of all time, and her music will surely be missed. My prayers go out to her family, especially her daughter– May you rest in peace Lady T
