~ The Lovezone with Geena Lee ~ Episode 53: Teena Marie

This past Saturday, March 5th, Teena Marie a.k.a. Lady T would have turned 55 years old.  Unfortunately, that wasn’t meant to be, as she was taken from us just last year, only a day after Christmas.  A protege of the late Rick James, Teena Marie was known for having a soulful voice that initially surprised many because of the vessel that contained it.  Her first album didn’t show her picture on the cover, so most folks had the impression that she was a black woman.  However, once she was ‘unveiled’, the Queen of Ivory Soul never let her appearance hold her back, as she was true to the gift of her musical talents, which crossed all boundaries and stereotypes.

Lady T not only wrote, produced and arranged most of her songs, she also played the keyboards, guitar and congas.  From 1979-2009, Teena released thirteen albums, and many of her songs have been either sampled or covered by other artists.  In honour of her life and the musical legacy that she blessed us with during her time on earth, I’ve put together a modest mix showcasing the talent of Lady T.

Love,
Geena
