Alia Rose: Teena Marie Daughter Made the Grim Discovery (Plus Videos of Teena Singing With Alia)

By Sunny Chanel |

The last 24 hours have been a whirlwind for Alia Rose.

Alia Rose is the daughter of R&B star Teena Marie and she herself followed in her mother’s footsteps and performing as a singer. The stage name she used was Rose Le Beau rather than Alia Rose. She was a Christmas baby and just celebrated her 19th birthday as well as Christmas day on December 25th. Her last tweet was “I’m about to pass the hell out,” so i guess she was indeed celebrating. And her mom tweeted the very sweet message,“19 yrs ago today, I was in labor! My heavenly father gave me the most glorious gift I could ever receive. A Baby girl on Christmas!”

But things turned very much for the worse on Sunday, December 26th…

Her daughter, the day after her birthday discovered her mother’s body. Teena Marie had died in her sleep. She had reportedly had a grand mal seizure, ” a neurological event, marked by loss of consciousness and violent muscle contractions,”  about a month ago. But had been feeling much better, and was quite upbeat lately.  She was even planning to return to the stage soon.

So sad for her daughter to have to be the one to find her. Our thoughts go out to Alia Rose and all Teena Marie’s friends and family.

    I’m sorely devastated…I was supposed to see here in concert in February here in LA with Keith Sweat…I’m in shock and disbelief. RIP Teena Marie and my condolences to her daughter and family.

    I will remember Teena Marie as “The Other Tina Marie” as we used to refer to one another during our Venice High School days! Teena (then Mary Brockert) and I stared in our High School Musical “Carousel” together and stayed in contact since high school! I used to tease her that she stole my name to reach fame, but she rightfully deserved and earned tha fame!!! Teena was the sweetest, most down to earth girl and for her little shorty size she had a huge heart of gold! When we were in high school she would make me laugh so hard that we were both about to pee out pants in the classroom! I am so shocked and so devastated at this news, I just saw her in September at the LA County Fair and we just laughed all over again about our high school days, the massive food fight she instigated in the cafeteria one day, and her job at “Pup’n Taco” in my neighborhood, now Taco Hell (bell) – OMG, we were about to pee our pants laughing at the food fight again at 54 years old! Rest in peace my sweet friend, and Thank You for making high school memories for me! I will never forget you, and always keep you in my heart! Love you always!

    I saw Teena on Twitter last Sunday Dec !9. I sent her a message telling her I loved her. To my surprise she tweeted me back. “Thanks for the love”, It made my day.She was my all time favorite female singer. I had a chance to meet her and tell her that a couple of years ago and she signed my Cd I just bought of her latest cd at that time “Cajun Square”

    I am devastated to learn of Teena Marie’s passing. I have loved her music for many years and she is my favorite female artist. She gave us beautiful, soulful music and no one can tarnish her memory. As humans we are always interested in what others are doing wrong in their life instead of rejoicing in what people do right. If there is a person in the world that can look in the mirror and say to themselves they don’t have some deep secrets they would rather leave deeply embedded in a dark closet, they are lying to themselves. No one is that perfect! So if you don’t have anything nice to say about this “Queen”. Please do not tarnish her memory with slander.

  6. Sugarpye of New Orleans says:

    I love you, T ‘ Na and God Loved you More. You are singing for His Majesty in Heaven now. I will never forget the outdoor concert you performed at the New Orleans Jazz Fest a few years back. It was awesome! I played your music this Christmas morning, ‘Square Biz,’ while I was getting dressed. How strange that be to learn you are no longer with us the very next day. May God bless your family and may you sleep in peace.

    May God bless you and your child, may he comfort her and protect her. No one wants to leave their child so soon. Gone to soon, you will be missed.

  9. TINA MARIE says:

    I can’t believe it. My desire has always been to see Teena Marie in concert .. I was given tickets from my daughter for Christmas only to hear she passed away. I am devastated, Teena Marie was my ultimate favorite R & B singer..

    May God bless your dayghter, may he comfort and protect her .. My prayers are with Teena and her family.. You will be terribly missed.

  10. Gay D. Carroll says:

    How ironic that Teena Marie died on the same day that a Philadelphia radio station had her on the battle of the best with Chaka Kahn. Although I like Chaka, there was no doubt that Teena, was my choice. RIP Teena.

    My heart skipped a beat when I heard the news this morning…Teena’s voice was like an angel’s voice to me through my hard times and good times. She is with her Lord and Saviour…with a smile on her face. xoxoxo

  13. BJ Strickland says:

    The death of Teena Marie will be a great loss to R&B lovers. She was a great artist and her talent will will be missed. May God be with you Alia Rose and give you the strength and comfort you will need during this most difficult time. Rest In Peace Lady T you will be greatly missed.

    I still cannot believe it. Lady T was one of the best singers ever because she was true to her music. Thanks to her, music artists will never be forced to stay with a record label against their best interests. The “Teena Marie Rule” is in the law books because she sued to get out of Berry Gordy’s clutches, and we all know about him. Her daughter needs help and prayer and support during this most difficult time. I know what it is to lose a mother being a young girl myself when it happened to me. It still feels as if it happened yesterday. RIP Teena. You’ll be busy catching up with your family, friends and musicians who have gone before you. Maybe someone will make a tribute songs in your memory like the one you made for Marvin Gaye, which is still one of the best. love you!

Thank-You!!!! All of your fans will support her music and her career! We love you and you will be missed!!!!!
