Teresa lived life to the fullest. Her voice was amazing and she touched so many
people through her singing. Teresa was the Gospel Songbird of Staten Island. She has
sung at so many churches, too many to mention and at weddings and funerals for
some of you sitting out there now. If she was out and a song was playing she had no
problem singing that song as if it was a concert. Teresa not only liked singing in
church she also sang in several bands just to give you two: Bill Francis Orchestra and
Johnny Castellano Good-n-Plenty. Karaoke was one of her favorites. Oh we can’t
forget FOOD, her favorite passion. She definitely was a people person with an
affectionate smile that would light up a room.
