    One of the greatest R&B voices ever. "Love TKO", "Turn Off the Lights" and a whole lot others. I'm surprised that he was only 59.

    I do believe he was the creator of the NCAA basketball staple "One Shining Moment."
    He had a great voice.
    RIP, Teddy.

    RIP to a true legend.
    Teddy Pendergrass was an outstanding talent. Huge sports fan. There was always a rumor that Turquoise Eving, Dr. J's ex-wife, was in the car with Teddy when it crashed on Wissahickon Drive back in 1982. That's how he became paralyzed.
    If you couldn't get your romance on with Teddy playing in the background, you had no romance.
    This guy was so good that he had sold out women only concerts and it wasn't uncommon for women to throw their underwear on stage.

    David Barrett was the original voice of "One Shining Moment".

    TP was pure soul.

    I guess someone finally turned out the lights, for good but whatever was ailing him, It Don't Hurt Now....... :p

    If you didn't like this man's music, you have no taste. The man was a brilliant song writer, singer and a lot of people probably don't know, drummer. In fact, he got his start as a drummer (OK, I watch way too much VH1 Classic).

    RIP to a great one.

    As great as Teddy P. was, he's not a member of the Rock and Roll hall of fame.

    Let's not forget his lead vocals with Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes.
    "If You Don't Know Me By Now"

    Tremendous record that Mick Hucknall wouldn't come within a million miles of. And I kinda dug Simply Red.

    I would never have heard of him if it wasn't for Eddie Murphy.
