performances, has died, her manager said Sunday. The performer was 54.

manager Mike Gardner said.
this is a legend in my book
Teena Marie was a soulful songstress who gave her all – you can hear it in her songs. May she rest in peace and may God be with her family/friends. Life is short, make love a priority!
I was on Facebook when I saw my friend's post! I don't want to believe it but it seems it's true. Another R&B legend gone...We love you, TM! 🙁
That was very ignorant.
this is so devastating. I met her 1 time I have every album and cd she ever made. I am crying cause I lost my best friend. RIP TEENA.
Teena was great!..one of the Few 'white artist' that could really sing RnB and not be fake about it..she was also one of the most successful white artist on the Rnb charts,,Her voice and range was AWSOME..and she was a musician and songwriter,,she did most or all of her produce records..REST IN PEACE LADY T.
Teena will be dearly missed!!
Take a long walk off a short cliff.
The Angel, Teena Marie, went quietly in her sleep. She and Rick are together forever!
We love you Teena.. baby girl if you need anything let the world know. We got u!
I grew up on you Tina and my 10 yr old loves your music too. Much respect to the soul sista and her family.
March 2010, Jazz in the Garden, Lady T brought the house down. It is sad to know I will never get to see u perform live again. RIP! Heaven is your home now! I pray your daughter can get through this devastating loss with the strength of family. She will be truly missed.
