On this day in 1970, Motown singer Tammi Terrel passes away at the age of 24.
 
 
Over a span of just 12 months beginning in April 1967, Terrell alongside duet partner Marvin Gaye enjoyed a string of four straight hits with some of the greatest love songs ever recorded at Motown Records – After “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough,” “Your Precious Love,” “Ain’t Nothing Like the Real Thing,” and “You’re All I Need to Get By.”
 
 

Six months after the release of “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough,” Terrell collapsed onstage during a live performance at Virginia’s Hampton-Sydney College.

 

Terrell died of complications from the malignant brain tumor that caused her 1967 collapse two years later.

 

She would have been 70 years old today!
