passed away the day after Christmas of natural causes..
I and all her fans feel as though the Ivory Queen of Soul was taken away from us far too soon, and know her born on Christmas Day daughter Alia Rose probably feels the same way. She is definitely missed, but she left us a lot of wonderful music to remember her with.
Alia is following in her mom's musical footsteps, and if she's even half as good as her Grammy winning mother, the music industry can sure use her.
Rest in peace Lady Tee.
