    The lyracist, the poet, the diva......rest in peace..........I always loved the way you understood the pains of a wounded heart. From Portuguese Love to Cassanova Brown. I shed many a tear to your music.

    Most of today's artist have no raw talent. Very synthetic and too many duplicates. Teena Marie may not have "crossed-over" into the main stream POPular culture, but she surely influeced the style of a lot of those who did. R.I.P. T Marie... your music will live on like the legend you are.

    This is painful news. The memories this beautiful lady and songstress gave me in my teen years and early adulthood is priceless. I love her and this hurts me that her life has ended at 54. Teena could really sing and make you feel it and experience the artistry of storytelling through her songs. I'm still trying to absorb her death. May God rest her beautiful soul. I will never ever forget you Teena. Kisses!

    She was a legend – There is no music out there now than can even compare to where he took her fans emotionally. She taught us about love entering my teenage years. Real passion. Not like the garbage you hear foks sing about today. She was an incredible performer and she genuinely loved our community.
