From Teena Miller: Good Morning! I was so pleased to get your thank you but we are the ones that need to say a BIG THANK YOU to all of you. The girls were so happy! GIRLEEgurlz is the best and I will be telling everyone about your business. I want to send something to Katile. I felt so bad because I didn’t have cash on me and wanted to tip her so I will be sending a check to you for her. Question for you…… My other granddaughter has an environmental peanut allergy and Type1 juvenile diabetes. With the environmental peanut allergy - that means that if there are peanuts or peanut butter anything anywhere in the vicinity, she will have a serious reaction. I would love to bring her there sometime but wanted to check if you are “peanut free”. Teena Marie

To love I have to go within, life can be so dizzy because of how it spins, gotta spend more time in peace, so forgiving them who smiled but really the motives, were plotted by faces with devilish grins, everyday the devil takes his best shot, to get the win, love so unlimited it has no end, but you must be choosy because those they say love you can pretend, I could cry over the past, and you can see the teardrop stains, thinking of my old soul R.I.P. Teena Marie and Rick James, best advice for anybody driving stay in your lane, keep eyes open, I show my passion, give my heart, smile for the good and bad times, because family and faith are so divine, cherish everything even when love removes itself in the form of those, who no longer have time, life is short, so instead of giving life to a fetus not grown up, some situations you have to abort, putting life together like an assembly line trying to daily sort, thankful to all those who ever on me dropped a gem, or sowed seeds, cousin said if they can't carry ...

Harp's 2006 album, In the Moment, debuted in the number one position of Billboard’s Contemporary . Everette Harp started playing piano at two, and began practicing saxophone at the age of four.

Personal life[edit] TEENA MARIE AND Rick James WERE NEVER MARRIED! THEY JUST HAD A CHILD TOGETHER "ALIA ROSE"..THEY WERE COMMON LAW MARRIED Teena Marie never married. She gave birth to a daughter named Alia Rose in 1991. As of 2009, Alia Rose sings under the name Rose LeBeau.[25] Throughout her career, Teena Marie lived in Inglewood, California and Encino before settling in Pasadena in the mid-1980s.

Again, Five more facts about me: 1. My two favorite female singers -Teena Marie and Laura Nyro 2. My father is from Louisiana , and my mother is from Belize (Louise/Belize) 3. Of all the Star Trek shows my all time favorite is .Deep Space Nine. 4. Although I've never owned one, I am a big fan of classic American Muscle Cars. 5.

I learned from the other post it's unfair to put "best", so who are your favorite female vocalists of all time? Choose up to three (remember, based on vocal abilities alone) Billie Holiday, Mahalia Jackson, Aretha, Gladys Knight, Patti Labelle Stephanie Mills, Lisa Fischer, Roberta Flack, Bonnie Raitt, Janis Joplin, Minnie Ripperton, Etta James, Nina Simone, Barbara Streisand, Mariah (rolls eyes), Celine Dion, Whitney Houston, Beyonce (for all intents and purposes, you can't sleep on the girl at all), Chaka Khan, Tina Turner, Donna Summers, Olivia Newton John, Teena Marie, Chante Moore, Deborah Cox, Tamia, Ledisi (I watched her on YouTube last night, unbelievable), Yolanda Adams, Faith Hill, Reba, Christina Aguilera (I mean...), Mary J Blige. (I know a bunch are missing but I can't think anymore)
That awkward moment when you pick up Teena Marie, Leontyne Price and Ladysmith Black Mambazo records at a flea market and the sales person looks at you like you're either deaf or have the most eclectic music sense ever.

In Memoriam: 50 Musicians Whose Deaths Rocked Music in 2010 By Chris Willman | Stop The Presses! – Tue, Dec 28, 2010 10:54 AM EST If each man's death diminishes us, as John Donne once said, how much more diminished are we after the demise of so many legendary musical figures in 2010? Three decades after getting the Knack, we lost it again, via the passing of frontman Doug Fieger. The children by the million who used to sing for Alex Chilton now cried for him. Country fans fell to pieces over the death of songwriter Hank Cochran. For Ronnie James Dio devotees, it wasn't just a black sabbath, but a black year. Captain Beefheart broke hearts. The loss of Lena Horne made our weather that much stormier. But even in death, Teena Marie won't stop being anyone's "Lovergirl." Here, we salute 50 musicians whose deaths left a void this past year—in the order of their passing, from Al Green producer Willie Mitchell and soul superstar Teddy Pendergrass in early January to the odd couple of Captain Beefheart and Te ...

Need to clear some space on my computer. Hmmm. I have a nice Motown box set in iTunes, but maybe, just maybe, Disc 4, with all the Lionel Richie, Teena Marie, Rick James and El Debarge won't, in the grand scheme of things, be getting a whole lot of airplay and might be reasonable to consider "Trash" material.

Musical Love I have played all 88 keys on the keyboard in various combinations and still have not found a chord that strikes me as much as you. And quite honestly, You and me mathematically, should only be 2 part harmony but what I feel in me vibrates ten times more fervently than that of a 20 piece orchestra playing a symphony. Conducted by warm hands gently plucking the strings of my heart, like the passion of a Mariachi desperado playing Spanish guitar. Desires crescendo in my chest, keeping rhythm like a Flamingo dancers steps ... speed up...slow down...rest. I have listened to Teena Marie, Sade, Patti Labelle, Sara Vaughn -but still none them turns me on like you do when you sing your song, softly and tenderly in my ear, that ends with the sweet refrain from a silent tear that you've kept inside, and in the background Sade sings Love is Stronger Than Pride. And is it just me or is it you also, that can relate to every song on the radio when Love is in season? I went from Hip Hop to Smooth Jazz the .. ...
So besides Roxie Roker, we have Teena Marie to thank for Lenny Kravitz. Yes.
No matter how many times I watch "Dreamgirls" I have chill bumps when Jennifer Hudson sings "And I Am Telling You, I'm Not Going"! She sang with such passion that it emits off the screen! Patti Labelle gave such a performance at the "Motown Returns To The Apollo! She was so annointed that she outsang a church choir and poor Joe Crocker had to get some oxgen backstage! LOL I love my female artists who can hold it down like Phyllis Hyman, Teena Marie, Stephanie Mills, Chaka Khan, Jill Scott, Angie Stone and Anita Baker! Do your thang sistas!
Now I have to learn Teena Marie's 'Square Biz' on bass guitar. Thanks
I remember I used to sing Fire and Desire by Teena Marie and Rick James as though my volcs were that good
Teena Marie I will always love her.
You can't tell me I'm not Teena Marie when "Portuguese Love" comes on. You just can't.
Not a lawyer but if Blackground is paying minimum retainer $ isn't the contract null per Teena Marie Law?
Just found I'm Still in Love by Teena Marie on for Android.
The Teena Marie law gives her some legal remedy if they're not paying minimum retainer $.

Fire and Desire by Rick James and Teena Marie. Reunited by Peaches and Herb. Very Special by Ronnie and Debra Laws...This was tough
my favorite singer is Teena Marie, that woman was so gifted sooo many songs, such a voice, who's y'all favorite
What was that 1 or 2 slow jams from back n the days that u had to listen to to set the mood? For me it was "Fire & Desire" (Teena Marie & Rick James) & Blue Magic & the Stylistics were my favorite groups.
I've come to realize I'm not much of a fan of new music. I didn't watch a second of the Grammys. You can also keep the AMAs, the CMAs, the BET, Source and Soul Train Music Awards. I'm pretty settled into my classic music. I prefer rediscovering songs that I've forgotten about than trying to listen to some of this mish mosh mess that's coming out now. And then to listen to these cats claim to be fans of the great music of the 70's, 80's or 90s while making the BS that comes through the radio these days. All I can do is shake my head. I'll take Outkast over Drake, Al Green over Trey Songz, Teena Marie over Rihanna, Earth Wind and Fire over the Black Eyed Peas, Michael Jackson over Chris Brown, MC Hammer over... well, I won't go that far, but you get the picture. Anthony Hamilton, Jill Scott, and Vivian Green should be megastars. People should realize that Adele is for some (I said 'some') people too lazy to find out what real good R&B music is... Just my opinion... my Sunday night rant. Good night, ...
Friends, thank you so much for the kind words on my birthday! I love you all very much for the wonderful feelings you gave me on my special day. Your wishes were all that was needed, to make my birthday much more special Thanks a lot! I cant believe I have to wait another year to hear such sweet things again.
Wanna get your energy vibrating at the highest level today? Listen to music... find those songs that give you goose bumps. I started my day with my old favorites: Rachelle Ferrell, Phyllis Hyman, Smokey Robinson,Teena Marie, the Gap Band and the UNDENIABLE Rick James- he took me there...oo wee!

Cheese & *** Now I have to be honest I must have been on another planet seeing that I ONLY now know that Teena Marie has passed away? I do not recall hearing this, but R.I.P for sure " ( (CNN) -- Teena Marie, a celebrated R&B singer-songwriter, was found dead Sunday at her California home, her manager said. Born Mary Christine Brockert in Santa Monica, California, the 54-year-old artist famously paired with late funk legend Rick James and was nominated four times for a Grammy Award, according to her official website. Marie was found dead by her daughter after apparently dying in her sleep, manager Mike Gardner said. "Teena was a black voice trapped in a white body," said Cathy Hughes, founder of Radio One, a broadcasting company that targets African-American and urban listeners. "I would always tell her that she was one of the greatest vocalists of our time." Among her songs were "Lovergirl," "Portuguese Love," "Ooo La La La," and "I'm a Sucker for Your Love." While no cause of death has been rele ...

Lets play Six Degrees of Separation! I'll start. Everyone who knows me is one degree of separation from Lenny Kravitz and Teena Marie cause I met them both. I'm also two degrees from Sam Jackson because my mom grew up with a guy who was in a movie with him! Go!
After watching the NAACP Awards, especially the "in memory of" portion, it really made sad to think of all the great talents and gifts gone much too soon over the 10-20 years. I pray their souls are resting in peace and that they knew the Lord Jesus Christ as their Savior. - Marvin Gaye, Teddy Pendergrass, Gerald Levert, Dean Levert, Rick James, Teena Marie, Donna Summer, Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, Luther Vandross, Vesta Williams, Barry White, Isaac Hayes, Sugarfoot, Nick Ashford, Isley Brothers member, Etta James, James Brown, Tupac, Biggie Smalls, Flo Jo, Curtis Mayfield, Walter Payton, Michael Clarke Duncan and so many others... Please feel free to add to the list.
I was scrolling through the radio stations and stopped at the Steve Harvey Morning Show and they were playing Teena Marie.
Ah February!  That magical time of year when our minds turn to romance and we put our future in a rodent's hands.  I'm happy to say, I've found some new tunes to go with your Valentine's and Groundhog's Day festivities.  Hope you like!    1.  Luv Letter (Teena Marie) - We lost her in 2010, but Lady T left behind some recordings which her daughter Alia took upon herself to complete and release as a final album.  I have to say - I love this song!!!  It sounds very true to Teena Marie's legacy.  And it's always nice to get a luv letter!   2.  I'm His Girl (Friends) - Funky indie band keeps the groove going with this upbeat song.   3.  Ouch That Hurts (Dionne Bromfield) - London soul singer and friend of Amy Winehouse apparently shares Amy's love of classic soul.  This one sounds like a lost 1970s hit from Maxine Nightingale.   4.  Chevy Van (Sammy Johns) - I was sad to hear of the NC native's passing last month.  This is his biggest hit and one of my all-time favorite 70's jams.  ...

RE: DID BEYONCE LIP-SYNCH? on GMAA a "vocal coach" said "..she would be crazy to perform live without a backup track seeing that itz hard to sing and dance at the same time. *** now, wait a minute.you mean to tell me that all those concerts I went to back in the day like EWF, Prince, Luther Vandross, James Brown, (Yep, I saw JB in concert in the 70s when I was a kid), Rick James, Teena Marie, etc.you mean they were lyp-synching? I don't think so
Teena Marie, Stacey Lattisaw, Stephanie Mills, Amerie, and KoKo from SWV are my top 5 female singers of all time. I bet none of your top 5 can touch mine!
As most of you know, I toured with the late great Teena Marie from 2010 to her untimely passing. The last time I seen her was in her studio a couple of weeks before Christmas. We had great time recording songs for her new CD "Beautiful". I'm very happy to announce that her daughter Alia, finalized and released it last week! It sounds great and brings back some really good memories! Thank you Teena Marie for allowing me to take part on your amazing CD "Beautiful"!!! It's the Bomb :)
John Kerry gets more of a "Black pass" than Darryl Hall, Teena Marie, and any white rapper of note.
Was having an average day until I got in my car, turned on the radio and heard EU, "Doing the Butt" followed by Teena Marie "Square Biz"...Michael Baisden (96.3) just rocked my evening commute!
I love ol' skool R&B! Rick James was king of them street jams in the 80's, Curtis Mayfield was that guy in the 70's with the Superfly album. Between all that was the Isleys, O'jays, the Whispers, EWF, The Stylistics, Blood Stone, Heatwave, Enchantment, the Moment, the Gal Band, LTD, Teddy Pendergrass, Smokey Robinson, Lenny Williams, Norman Connors, Major Harris, Billy Paul and of course Stevie Wonder and Marvin Gaye. The ladies did their thing too! Who could pass up Patti Labelle, Debra Laws, Minnie Riperton, Chaka Khan, Deniece Williams, Angela Winbush and Lady, Teena Marie! The list goes on and on with the likes of Donny Hathaway to Stephanie Mills, learn your trade. This is where it's at if you want the older folks to appreciate good quality music, straight up!

I really cannot take it seriously when stick-thin women try to act tough. It seems laughable. I could not take Pat Benatar seriously in any way, shape or form, for instance, as some kind of bad *** It feels like she is so tiny that you could just break her in half over your knee! Joan Jett is another one of those tiny petite little gals who try to act all tough but somehow it just seems like a joke. Now, when Queen Latifah acts tough, I believe it and want to back up! Somehow those tiny women rarely can ever sing, to boot. I do not consider Joan Jett or Pat Benatar for example, to be vocalists in the class of fat women such as Aretha Franklin, Queen Latifah, Ann Wilson, Laura Nyro or Jennifer Hudson (don't worry, she will not stay thin for long, despite her Jenny Craig commercials, reference Oprah), Ella Fitzgerald, etc. I can only think of one tiny woman who has had a powerful voice, Teena Marie...I see very thin women trying to use monikers of "strength" but somehow it seems more like hype than reality ...
thanks 360GROOVE :She has departed for the place filled with streets made of gold, but she left us a legacy of soulful music to get us through the rest of our lives. As she was working on this when she died, her daughter, Alia Rose did a masterful job of finishing this for her mother. I'm enamored with Sweet Tooth, Love Starved, and Carte Blanche...they will take their rightful place among my other 30 favorite songs of Miss...Teena Marie. thanks emusic: Teena Marie died peacefully in her sleep the day after Christmas ,December 26, 2010, Pasadena. To Top 40 followers, Marie was primarily the voice of 1984′s Prince-like hit “Lovergirl.” Although she was recovering from a recent grand mal seizure, this 54-year-old Californian was scheduled to perform in Atlanta on New Year’s Day. To those who knew the scope of Mary Christine Brockert’s catalog, such a casual, apparently peaceful passing seemed altogether wrong. The Teena Marie publicly projected by this petite singer with the big voice embraced ear ...
