Thomasina Winifred Montgomery, known as Tammi Terrell (April 29, 1945–March 16, 1970) was an American recording artist & songwriter most notable for her association with Motown Records & her duets with Marvin Gaye. After modest solo success her stardom grew when paired with Gaye in 1967. On Oct. 14, 1967 she collapsed on stage into Gaye's arms. Diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor, she died 2 years later at the age of 24. Hear Tammi's "This Old Heart Of Mine" in my board "My Music: The Girls."
