OSF Salutes Teena Marie (featuring video w/Patti Labelle)

Mrs.Grapevine informed me that the Old School Friday meme for 2011 is kicking off, and the theme for today is Teena Marie. I posted other videos of the singer when she died in December. But thinking about OSF, I came across not a song but this great video of Teena Marie singing to Patti Labelle, "Somebody Loves You, Baby" and after she's done, Patti talks about how much she loves her, and that she's a real friend to her, not a pretend friend.

I thought this was also a good clip because I have on my mind the Scott Sisters who will be released from prison today after serving 16 years of an unjust, double life sentence. So, this clip with these two great songstresses showing each other so much love like sisters seemed to fit.

Mrs Grapevine and MsMarvalus have teamed up to create a meme titled Old School Friday. To join in the Old School Fridays Fun go HERE for guidelines.

This almost brought tears to my eyes, these are two of the finest. Both of their voices are so strong they don't even need a mic. They can hit notes that will send out chills.

Great find. Patti LaBelle said, she can sing like a black woman. Love It!!!

lol "She's a singing somebody...a singing fool" - Patti
