Hello to the most SOULFUL forum I've found!
This should come as a very pleasant surprise to Tammi Terrell and Motown fans. I wrote previously that the great book "Conversations With The Mann" contains a big Motown surprise. For those of you who might not have known already, it so happens that its main female character is none other than Tammi herself.
On top of this, MGM has already initiated plans for a major film adaptation. This will no doubt generate even more anticipation for Ludie & Vickie's bio! Life is truly getting sweeter... can a Marvin biopic be far behind??

Hello PlatinumPal, you seem to be a really big Tammi Terrell fan. That makes me very happy! Thanks a lot

Terri, is that you????

Hello friends... just got back. Thanks for the greetings. E. F., I'm not Terri, hope you're not too disappointed (smile). If Terri's female, that further disqualifies me for that particular honor!
Thommygirl, you are so right. I am a HUGE Tammi fan like you. I have enjoyed your posts for a long time. I'm also a huge Marvin, Motown, soul, pop, jazz, country (some), hip-hop (some), and just all-around GOOD music fan. But again for me, Tammi's expressive singing is in a league not often shared by others.

PlatinumPal, thank you very much for the compliment! I am very glad to hear that you are a huge Tammi fan, like myself. I am a big fan of all of the music that you have mentioned, especially of sixties and early seventies soul music. You are so right Tammi, did have a way with her voice. Her vocal style was a perfect blend of what I describe as the 4S's 'Soulfulness, Sassiness, Sexiness and Sophistication' I listen to a lot of the young singers who are around today, many of whom are as young as she was at that time and NONE of them possess the same level of passion, depth and emotion as she did. Tammi was certainly in a class of her own
I have yet to read "Conversation With The Mann' but for an author to have just recently written a book that has a Tammi Terrell character in it speaks SO MUCH for the legacy that she has left behind. Even today, she still has an amazing affect on people I cannot wait to get this book!! And now a film is being developed for this as well? This is amazing! Thank you for providing me with this information. I will be sure to look out for it. I am enjoying your Tammi Terrell posts, thank you!

Thommygirl, you are very welcome... I was only speaking the truth. Let us know what you think of the book.

Yes, when I get it and read it I will do that!

Please don't get Ashanti, ha ha!
|By Thommygirl_70 (126.96.36.199) on Friday, August 15, 2003 - 04:46 pm:|
Hehehe, no comment on Ashanti,lol!! This is a difficult question for me. I'm not quite sure who I would want to play Tammi in this movie(or any movie) if I could choose. I think I'm gonna give this some thought...

There is a young lady that I saw in the movie called "Baby Boy"(don't get this movie because it sucks!) that has a striking resemblance to Tammi. She has Tammi's height, skin color & everything. She reminded me alot of Tammi every time there was a scene with her & Tyrese. I don't know her name but I think she is a dead ringer for Tammi.
