Teena Marie died Sunday December 26, 2010. She was found by her daughter in bed. No cause of death has been released as of this posting. She could really sing. I remember when her song ‘Lover Girl’ came out back in the 80’s. I had such a crush on her then. I’m really going to miss her. Even though I never had the pleasure of meeting her, there is a empty place in my heart now.
Born Mary Christine Brockert on March 5, 1956, in Santa Monica, Marie was a protegee of the late Rick James and rose to prominence in the late 1970s and 80s. She released 13 studio albums in her career with 6 of them going platinum. She also had 4 Grammy nominations. She is a great loss to music and, she will be greatly missed. We love Teena. Rest in Peace.
