R.I.P. Teena Marie

Singer Teena Marie, the "Ivory Queen of Soul", also known as Lady T, passed away today in her California home from an unspecified cause. She was found unresponsive by daughter Alia Rose. Marie was a protégée of funk artist Rick James, and she was also a multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and producer.

Personally, i'm pretty saddened by the news of the loss of another great in music. I saw her performing live years ago and to see her play the bass guitar like a true master. I will miss her voice, presence and skill as an artist.
