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.
Wow... unbelievable...i loved her music ever since I was a little girl...so sad to see her go...
I'm shocked. I saw her in concert with Rick James, Bayfront Center, in '81. What a wonderful voice. She will truly be missed.
Wow... Nearly 30 yrs ago, Lady T along with Rick James must have left a lasting impression and a fond memory! The other half of Fire and Desire has passed on. She will truly be missed!
You will be truely missed by all!!!!

I was one of the biggest. can't beleave she is gone.
RIP Lady T you will truly be missed my condolences to her family and the entertainment world. Her music was soothing to the SOUL.
Oh My God, a legend is gone. I guess God needed another choir member.
I guess GOd did. You know we are only borrowed her on Earth!
Indeed....she was "Baaad" in her own special & Funky way.....RIP Lady T!
If God needed another choir member, HE would have made him one!
She was The Real Deal! It's a sad day, you can't fake what she had. I'm going to miss her. These are your tears.
I remember Lady T back when I was in high school. I am now 42. She will be greatly missed. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family. RIP Lady T

Supet soul singer, rip.
I really need 2 say this do it matter if people spell her name wrong dam people r on here just tryn 2 pay there respects 2 her family that's all. Well anyway RIP teena marie
Thanks I too took for granted I knew how to spell oh politic one!
For the love of Christmas! People! LEARN TO SPELL! Americans look like idiots to the rest of the world because we are illiterate. You mean to write "DOES it matter..." not "Do it matter."
" dam people..." Again, spelling. Damn is the curse word. Dam is the wall of concrete in a lake.
"tryn" is not a word. Do you mean TRYING?
"...pay there respects..." THEIR not 'there.'
" Well anyway RIP teena marie" Capitalize formal names, Teena Marie.
