Teddy Pendergrass

Born: 1950-03-26 - Died: 2010-01-13
Cause of Death:
Complications from colon surgery


Death Summary: In 2009 Teddy Pendergrass underwent colon cancer surgery and had complications and had a difficult time recovering. He died on January 13, 2010 at Bryn Mawr Hospital in suburban Philadelphia. Pendergrass was 59.

Who was Teddy Pendergrass : Pendergrass, also known as Teddy P, or Teddy Bear, was an R&B singer and songwriter.

He began his career as the lead singer of Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes in the 1970s before breaking away for a solo career. Pendergrass' self titled debut album was released in 1977 and made it all the way to #17 on the Pop charts and #5 on the R&B. In total Pendergrass released 20 albums.

On March 18, 1982 Pendergrass was involved in a car accident when the brakes failed on his Rolls Royce. His car slammed into a tree trapping him and his passenger, Tenika Watson, a transsexual nightclub performer whom Pendergrass was a friend of. The pair were stuck in the wreckage for 45 minutes. Watson walked away from the accident with only minor injures while Pendergrass was left paralyzed from the waist down.

In 2006, Pendergrass announced his retirement from the music business. He came back briefly for Teddy 25: Celebration of Life, Hope & Possibilities, an awards ceremony where Pendergrass honored people who had helped him after his accident.

  94. Trudie Wingfield Says:

    I only discovered Teddy 5 years ago. I have loved his solo work ever since and think he touched the hearts of women in a way not many men cannot.
    I was so sorry to learn of his private life and his accident. But what great courage and strength he showed, going on to sing and to fall in love with his wife. He became MORE loved because of how he succeeded against the odds.
    Teddy will be remembered for his amazing voice and songs, but most of all for the man he showed himself to be in overcoming and battling personal tragedy. He never gave up and still was able to find and give joy to life. He has added much joy to my life as well as so many others.
    What an inspiration to the human race!
    Much love to Teddy and his family and friends and anyone else lucky enough to have know him.

  95. Sylvia I. Says:

    I’ve loved TP since he sang with Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes. When he went solo, I was probably one of the first people to buy his first solo album in 1977, which I still have to this day. Teddy was truly one of the greats, along with Luther Vandross and Whitney Houston…at least in my book. His music was fabulous and made women feel sooooooo good!!! :-) Thank you, Teddy, for sharing your talent with us…you are now reunited with Luther and Whitney on the other side, so keep on making that amazing music!!!! RIP
