Alia Rose,21, is a free spirit and has mom to thank for such liberty. The singer recently discussed her relationship with the late songstress Teena Marie during an interview on ‘Two Black Girls and a Mic’ radio broadcast.
Alia and Teena had a close mother-daughter relationship. In fact, when Alia was was just fourteen years old, her mother told her she wouldn’t be on earth much longer.
“My mom was very spiritual and she was very connected with God. She told me that God told her she wouldn’t be here too much longer.”
Ms. Teena Marie died a day after Alia turned nineteen. Alia paid homage to her mom by releasing her final album last month. The young adult plans to further develop her singing career and currently goes by the stage name of Rose LeBeau. Teena Marie passed away in 2010 of natural causes.
