Rose Le Beau

Rose Le Beau, A legend Left this universe. Teena “Lady T” Marie who died at the age of 54. She was seen last Teena carry two months ago at the Capital Jazz supersonic. It was by far the best act of the hand throughout the week down. Teena was the first album I ever played back to back, again and again. I was in college when I heard “Portuguese Love” and Square Biz. “I’ve been hooked ever since.
Teena when I interviewed earlier this year, before her appearance at the Jazz in the gardens of the show, I just assumed it would be the blessing of her audience for years to come. Read this interview here: R & B queen Mary J. Blige, Teena Marie lights Jazz in the Garden We talked about her relationship with Rick James. He was her mentor, her friend and her lover. But she refused to put up with the fact that it was not her only lover. Their stormy relationship lasted until her untimely death in 2004. Teena said it was her best friend. She revamped her show to honor him, noting that after its passage, it was no longer just herself, but Rick, too. She felt it was her responsibility to continue her legacy.
She said she had yet done, because she loved him. And because she needed money. She took leave from work to raise her daughter Rose Lebeau, a talented singer in her own right. And she had a difficult time as a single mother. Rough enough that she had to sell one of her guitars to raise money to make ends meet. But increasing the Rose was her number one priority. Teena talent was undeniable. And her music is timeless. It continues to delight audiences with songs from the previous generation and a voice that sounded the same today as it did then reflects this fact. God May Bless her soul, RIP
