"Last night Jesus shined a heavenly light
Through my window in the dark of night
He made me see all of the joys His love could bring

He makes my spirit move endlessly, I am a child of the heavens
Alleluia, my Jesus died for me
Thank You, Father for all the songs You've given me"-Teena Marie, "Light" from the album Starchild
Yes Father. Thank you for all the songs you've given us through Lady T. 
She is terribly missed. I still can't believe it. - Toya

Teena Marie is and always will be one of the all time greats and one of my favorite singers of all time.I had the pleasure of seeing this woman perform and she was amazing live. Those lyrics you posted could'nt have captioned it better. Thank You, Father, for blessing us with Lady T.Her music will live on forever.May you rest in eternal peace, Ms. Teena and may God be with your precious daughter. *stunned*

Her passing is defnitely shock of the year. I saw her twice with once being her and Rick James a couple of months before he passed. She brings down the house everytime. Her music is another link to the 80's, one of the best decades ever. R.I.P. Lady T and thank you for your sharing your gift of music.

I was shocked and saddened, but glad that I was able to share some time on earth with a person with such rich talents. Her music will live on forever. RIP Lady T!

I grew up listening to Teena. I remember seeing her on Soul Train, Solid Gold, etc. She was a little lady with a big, beautiful voice and heart. She was the real thing and music should be as good as hers, but so much of it now, is not. She didn't get the respect she deserved when alive, didn't win the awards she should have won, but she was loved by so many people. Prayers to her family--her mother and her daughter. RIP Teena. Gone, but never forgotten.
