I can’t stake claim to be Teena Marie’s biggest fan, but I do know she was one of the more vocally gifted singers of her generation. For those who truly appreciated her music – not the one’s running around saying “R.I.P. Tina Marie” – like Marsha Ambrosius, the passing is more difficult to cope with, especially since it happened so suddenly.
On Monday night in North London, Marsha decided to pay tribute to the late singer by giving her own rendition of Teena’s “Yes Indeed” while performing at Dingwalls. While the originator can always stake claim to the track’s greatness, Marsha more than did her thing on this. Her voice is angelic and according to Ambrosius, Marie co-signed her rendition of the record.
