The Ultimate Tribute to Teena Marie featuring Carmen Jones

Carmen Jones and The Déjà Vu Band performing "Portuguese Love"
  • Things you should know about Teena Marie: with her partner-in-funk Rick James, Teena started packing the charts with soul in 1979, became the first white guest star ever on Soul Train and Motown’s top-selling white solo act, and she wrote, produced, and arranged nearly all of her own music
  • Therefore: it takes a lot of talent, and a lot of moxie, to take on Teena’s material
  • The singer and group with that moxie: Carmen Jones and The Déjà Vu Band
  • How Carmen found her inspiration: in 1985, Carmen was singing outside of a Denny’s when her voice caught the ear of Teena’s friend Mickey, who asked Carmen to come aboard Teena’s tour bus to sing for her
  • What Teena Marie exclaimed upon hearing Carmen Jones: “The girl can sing!”
  • What Carmen did next: she turned her singing talents into a profession that pays tribute to the soul legend
