Thanks so much for this post. We’re trying to be much more responsive when it comes to spreading the word about tributes, benefits–all endeavors that are geared toward making our world a better place. Teena Marie was taken from us way too soon, but we can all learn something from her rich legacy of accomplishment. We give our full support.
From the Soundboard is a show that focus on concerts regardless of genre. Artist and/or group perfecting the art of “call and response” with its audience. On Wednesday, March 23 in celebration of Women History Month we will focus on the Ivory Queen of Soul (aka Lady T,) Teena Marie.
“Teena Marie was a person who personified the idea that culture is learned. And for whatever reason, she was raised in a situation where she was exposed to soul music, R&B music, and she embraced it as her own. She believed that if it moved her, she could be part of it.” Guthrie Ramsay [Music Professor, University of Pennsylvania]
