When i think back to how her music has influenced me over the years ,one memory repeats over and over and that s back to the death of MARVIN GAYE I can still remember how sad I felt about the whole situation ,DIANA ROSS Had release the LIONEL RITCHIE penned song MISSING YOU this was a wonderful tribute MAZE had also released the epic SILKY SOUL SINGER. Then came time for TEENA`S tribute to the great man it was not only a masterpiece but a tribute to music itself and the artistry that TEENA MARIE had used there in, the lyrics the production the key structures and changes within the song ,the overall production and of course the vocal execution ,that was simply unbelievable. The words were positive the tone of the song struck a positive and moving tribute ,leaving you not sad ,but hopeful. That song echoes in my head from time to time as a sort of theme tune .It does that now as I type these words .TEENA recently said of today’s music you have to look very far to find GREAT! Music ,songs and artist. This sadly is so true there is a lot of junk to look at in to- days modern music ,( i suppose when your a sarah vaughn fan it will always be hard to match anyone to her standard)when it seems that we didn’t have to look to far to find this 35 or even 25 years ago, and yet as each year goes by we lose a shining light a true one at that in TEENA MARIE it leaves you slightly doubtful of the artistry around today yet there are great acts out there, some that are there some that have not been discovered, yet we can do our part by supporting them .This means buying the music ,TEENA MARIE set a benchmark in soul music jazz and blue`s plus rock that when we look back and realise this ( as i guess many of us already do) we will yet again morn that we lost a true STARCHILD some one capable of writing songs that uplifted and gave hope ,as oppose to making the listener angry or sad. If you are new to music you should have a TEENA MARIE album in your collection .Indeed all should . So to TEENA MARIE I say thank you for the music and I hope there will be more to come. Sad news i have to report that one of soul music `s pioneers( the woman to whom gave me the inpiration for my daughters name) and icon has died TEENA MARIE as annouced by her manager has past away ,i was hoping this was not true .It appears last month she had a siezure whilst watching Tv Lynn Jeter said that Marie suffered a grand mal seizure -- a neurological event, marked by loss of consciousness and violent muscle contractions, according to the Mayo Clinic
"Luckily, someone was there," Jeter said of that seizure. "The ambulance took her to the hospital, and on the way she had another seizure.". No confirmed cause as yet though .

found this quote fom the artist LENNY KRAVITZ
"I've never really talked much about it in depth, but I would not be here ... if it wasn't for Teena," he confessed. "She took me in when I was around 16. I was just a musician on the street. I was living from pillar to post. She took me in. She gave me a bedroom. She fed me. She cooked for me. She took care of me. She gave me instruments to play. She took me to all her recording sessions. She took me to concerts. She nurtured me and helped me to become who I am. She changed my life not only as an artist but as a person.
"Teena Marie was a treasure, was a genius – composer, arranger, singer, musician, unique [and] underrated by far," Kravitz continued. "I just want to send all my love and respect out to the family."
