Tina Marie, (AP) – A publicist said Motown singer Teena Marie, who was known as the “Queen of Ivory Soul,” died at the age of 54.

The confirmation came Sunday publicist Jasmine Vega, who worked with Teena Marie on her latest album. His manager, Mike Gardner, has also confirmed his death to CNN.

Marie has developed a lasting legacy and his hits silky soul hits like “Lovergirl,””Square Biz “and” Fire and Desire “with his mentor Rick James.

It certainly was not the first white act to sing soul music. However, it was probably the most talented and respected, and he was fully adopted by black audiences.
