Tuesday night, Marsha Ambrosius was back in her home country of the U.K. for an intimate show at North London’s Dingwalls. During her set she performed a cover of the late Teena Marie’s “Yes Indeed”, which was a personal favorite of both vocalists.
“She used to do ‘Say Yes’ in her set, and that’s how we got talking…” Ambrosius revealed, playing her version of the song to the crowd through a laptop. “Back when I thought I was recording a solo album I was like, ‘I love ‘Portuguese Love’ and I love ‘Yes Indeed’ and I would love to cover it,’ and she gave me the ‘Okay girl!’”
“Then she heard it and she gave me approval. That means a lot to me; for a singer to respect you is like a whole other thing… To have the respect of someone like that is like, I’m doing the right thing with my life…”
