Biografia

Teena Marie (born Mary Christine Brockert on March 5, 1956 in Santa Monica, California, USA) is an American Grammy Award-nominated singer/songwriter/producer. Marie, nicknamed “Lady T”, is a protegé of late funk legend Rick James, and is notable as one of the few successful Caucasian R&B performers, currently the reputed queen of blue-eyed soul. She sings R&B with big, robust vocals. She also has written, produced, sang and arranged virtually all of her songs since her 1980 release Irons in the Fire. She has quoted this as being her favorite album.

Biography

Marie grew up in west Los Angeles in a neighborhood that was nicknamed “Venice Harlem” because of its heavy black population. The singer/songwriter/producer was in her early twenties when, around 1977, she landed a job at Motown Records. It was at Motown that she met her mentor and paramour-to-be, Rick James, who ended up doing all of the writing and producing for her debut album of 1979, Wild and Peaceful. That LP, which boasted her hit duet with James, “I’m Just a Sucker for Your Love,” didn’t show Marie’s picture — so many programmers at black radio just assumed she was black. When her second album, Lady T, came out, much of the R&B world was shocked to see how fair-skinned she was. But to many of the black R&B fans who were eating her music up, it really didn’t matter — the bottom line was she was a first-rate soul singer whose love of black culture ran deep.
