Teena Marie's Death Shocks Fans

Teena Marie's Death Shocks Fans


LOS ANGELES (Top40 Charts) On the afternoon of December 26, 2010, Teena was found unconscious by her daughter at her home in Pasadena, California. As of December 28, an autopsy had been scheduled to determine cause of death. No foul play was suspected.

Artists including Questlove, Danny Tenaglia, Alicia Keys, Missy Elliott, Sheila E, Snoop Dogg, Lalah Hathaway Mary J. Blige and Amerie took to Twitter to post their rememberances and tributes. Lenny Kravitz posted an emotional video in which he revealed that Teena had taken him into her home and helped him when he was struggling early in his career.

The death of R&B legend Teena Marie continues to shock fans, who still can't comprehend the "Lovergirl" singer's unexpected passing at age 54 on Sunday.

En Vogue member Cindy Herron echoed Peete's sentiments: 'It's a loss for those who loves her music, but also the music world," she told Martin. "She still had so much to offer.'

Sean "Diddy" Combs told Martin: "The world has lost one of the most talented and beautiful musicians of our time. There will never be another Teena Marie."

Still, the "Square Biz" singer's legacy will live on, says Lionel Richie.

In a YouTube message he recorded on Monday, Lenny Kravitz says, 'I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for Teena.' The singer said Marie took him in when he was 16 years old and living on the street. 'She gave me a bedroom,' he says. '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.'
He adds: 'She changed my life, not only as an artist, but as a person who truly loved me for who I was.'
