Death Summary:

Who was Teena Marie : Teena Marie was an American singer-songwriter nicknamed Lady Tee, considered an R&B legend who proclaimed herself as the "Ivory Queen of Soul" because she was one of the first successful white performers of that genre of music. She had many classic hits including a duet with her mentor Rick James called "Fire and Desire".

Marie was born in Santa Monica, CA but grew up in the more African-American area of Oakwood, CA where she was raised on Motown music. As a child, she received an acting role on "The Beverly Hillbillies" and sang at the famous actor Jerry Lewis' wedding.

Marie played all types of instruments including rhythm guitar, keyboards, congas and others. In 1980 her album "Irons of Fire," which she wrote, arranged and sang, was released. She considered this her favorite album. She also had many top hits on the black singles charts in her years as a musician.

Teena Marie released an album, "La Doña" in 2004, and a follow up in 2006 "Sapphire". Both were successes but "La Doña" became a gold certified record and peaked at #6 on the billboard charts.

Her official cause of death hasn't been announced yet, but authorities that found her said it looked like natural causes. She had one teenage daughter who is following closely in her footsteps as a singer-songwriter.

    I would like to express my hantks to the writer for rescuing me from this problem. Right after researching through the the net and obtaining solutions that were not pleasant, I figured my entire life was gone. Living minus the strategies to the problems you’ve solved all through your good report is a serious case, and those which might have badly damaged my entire career if I had not discovered your web blog. Your personal knowledge and kindness in playing with all the pieces was important. I am not sure what I would’ve done if I hadn’t come upon such a solution like this. It’s possible to at this point look forward to my future. Thanks a lot very much for this professional and results-oriented help. I won’t be reluctant to suggest the sites to anyone who needs and wants direction about this subject matter.
