    She was something of a lesbian icon, too. RIP

    Notice copious arm dancing.

    She performed at the Jazzfest this year in New Orleans and I was lucky enough to get to see her and purchase the live show. One of the very few singers I was turned onto when I was young that I actually got a chance to see. Was shocked when the news came over the the Twitter.

    When She first burst on the scene with Freaky RICK JAMES singing the duet "Fire And Desire" nobody believed it was her but yeah shes the most soulful White woman ya ever heard! I remember her music in constant rotation at all my family reunions as a kids I feel like I lost a family member! Im sure Rick met you at the pearly gates

    I am devastated; I think my heart missed a beat when I saw this thread.
    Teena Marie is and always will be my absolute favourite artist ever since buying her first album Wild & Peaceful back in 1979 after hearing her track 'I'm a sucker for your love' with Rick James in a club and I've bought every album she made since.

    RIP Teena - Tune in Tomorrow

    MAN!! she used to put on a hell- of- a- show whenever she came out here to Philly!!
    she had the people outside of the venue(the Dell East) climbing in trees to see her perform.
    so underrated,and so influential...R.I.P.

    Every once in a while the world is gifted with an anomaly - someone uniquely unlike anything we've ever seen before.

    Such was Teena Marie, with her sweet, soulful voice. She will definitely be missed.
