The life of R&B singer Teena Marie will be celebrated during a private memorial service on Monday, Jan. 10.
The 54-year-old singer, who died unexpectedly in her sleep on Dec. 26, will be laid to rest at Forest Lawn Cemetery’s Liberty Hall at 1pm PST.
An estimated 700 people are expected for the invite-only Catholic funeral service.
The Santa Monica, Calif.-bred singer was cremated. The cause of death remains undetermined.
Marie would have celebrated 32 years in entertainment this year.
In 2009, she celebrated 30 years in the music business by releasing her 13th CD, ‘Congo Square’ on Stax Records.
That year she was also featured on TV One’s ‘Unsung,’ which remains the highest-rated episode among the series franchise.
More recently, the Rick James-protege had signed with the hip-hop label Cash Money Records for a second time.
She had planned to release her 14th CD on the label in 2011. Cash Money released Marie’s 2004 CD, ‘La Dona.’
