R.I.P Teddy P.
I'm so sad to say that R&B icon Teddy Pendergrass died last night after a battle with colon cancer. He was 59. My adopted mother used to blast his records all over the house. I grew up on songs like "Turn off the Lights,""Close the Door" and "Love TKO." I loved how the Philadelphia native was honest with his feelings and raw with his emotions. There will never be another like Teddy P.
