LimeLight: Musical Legend Teddy Pendergrass dies at 59

The music world lost another icon as R&B singer Teddy Pendergrass passed away yesterday at the age of 59 at  Bryn Mawr Hospital outside of Philadelphia. Teddy P was strugling with revovery from colon cancer for over a year. In 1982 Teddy was paralyzed in a sevre car accident which put his career on halt. Despit the medical setbacks, Teddy P has sold over 10 million albums, five Grammy nominations, and countless love songs. It is unthinkable to talk about musical greats such as Luther Vandross and Marvin Gaye without adding Teddy Pendergrass name to the conversation. Teddy’s son stated, “To all his fans who loved his music, thank you. He will live on through his music.”

SMG sends condolonces to the Pendergrass family and pays trubite to Teddy P with a few videos of his classic songs.
