In your description of my play [I Am Who I Am: The Teddy Pendergrass Story at Black Ensemble Theater, Fall Arts Preview, September 7, and at chicagoreader.com] you have described Mr. Pendergrass as “the late soul star.” Let me inform you that Teddy Pendergrass is very much ALIVE. Mr. Pendergrass is a very astute businessman, still singing and touring occasionally. He is Alive and Well and lives in Pennsylvania. It is an insult to our community and to Mr. Pendergrass–please take care of this error and correct it immediately.
