R&B Legend Teena Marie Dies Today

This has to be one of the hardest things I have had to report on in years. The R&B soul legend Teena Marie has died. A source close to the family has confirmed to me personally that she passed away today. Details of how she died have not been released yet. But Michael Gardner, Teena’s manager told theHuffington Post earlier today that Teena’s daughter found her dead in her home and that Teena suffered a seizure last month.

I had the pleasure of meeting Teena Marie twice this summer. Once when she gave an amazing performance in Rochester NY and again weeks later in New York City. She gave me the honor of interviewing her and it was something I will never forget. I have loved her all my life and have grown up with her music. This has hit me like a ton of bricks. I am still in shock. I can’t believe my souls sista is gone.

I will love you forever Lady Tee.
