Lenny Kravitz’s message for Teena Marie “I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for Teena.” (Video)

“…I Just want to say Teena that, I will always love and respect you. Thank you for being my friend.”

Currently in Paris, Lenny Kravitz recorded this heartfelt personal message a few hours ago in memory of Teena Maria who tragically passed away yesterday.

“I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for Teena. She took me in when I was around 16. I was just a musician on the streets, I was living from pillar to post. She took me in, she gave me a bedroom, she fed me, she cooked for me, she took care of me. She gave me instruments to play, she took me to all her recording sessions. She took me to concerts, she nurtured me and helped me to become who I am.”
