Teena Marie was a protégée of the late Rick James, and was notable as one of the few successful white performers of R&B. I remember her music so well. I was only little but I danced my butt off (and still do when I hear her music). The memories that music can hold are always so magical to me. There I was, in my 80's pants, with a wrist full of jelly bracelets and hair so stiff and big that only a bottle of AquaNet could be responsible for. I have danced for as long as I can remember. This was my jam.
Marie died today, on Sunday, December 26, 2010, at her home at the age of 54. She will be missed. But her music lives on. Music never dies, and neither do memories.
