Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell – United

Tammi Terrell’s story is so heartbreaking, and her tragic passing at such a young age represented such a loss for a world of people whose hearts had been forever changed by the elegant and soulful timbre of her exquisite voice.

Born in 1945. First signed in 1960. First paired with Marvin Gaye in 1967. By 1970, she was gone, having fallen victim to a brain tumor that 8 surgeries couldn’t defeat.

What can be said in the face of this?

Simply, thank you. And goodbye.

Goodbye, and thank you, Thomasina Winifred Montgomery.
