Posted On : July 30, 2016

By now we, here at ILOSM, have grown accustomed to learning¬†shocking info about many of our favorite Old School entertainers, but every now and then we come across something that completely takes the shock factor to a whole ‘notha level. As was the case when we saw EIGHT YEAR OLD Teena Marie acting her lil’ heart out on “The Beverly Hillbillies” TV show back in the day!¬†Y’all have GOT to see this…


teena and bev hills Teena Marie was the 8 year old little girl who was tap dancing on "The Beverly Hillbillies!" It's so cool to see the little Teena WAY before she became the "Portugese Love" soul sangin' Teena! Watch her do her thing in this "Hillbillies" clip:

Teena started singing at the age of 2. The first song she learned was Harry Belafonte's "Banana Boat Song." By the time she was 8, her parents, Thomas and Mary began taking her on auditions for acting and singing gigs, which quickly landed her the little tap dancer role on "The Beverly Hillbillies," and her name on the credits was listed as Tina Marie Brockert. Like we always say, we learn something new around here everyday!
