Therese "T'rez" Hepburn(1964 - 2012)

Therese 'T'rez' Hepburn, a well-loved Bahamian entertainer who suffered a massive stroke nearly two months ago, died at Doctors Hospital on Friday. She was 48.

Over the weekend, those who knew her best described her as a woman of wit, laughter and dedication. Hepburn was a dancer, model, actor and musician.

Her mother and other close family members were at her bedside when she passed, The Nassau Guardian understands.

Hepburn spent most of her life on the stage, but it wasn't until meeting up with Kirkland 'KB' Bodie in late 1999 that she began her music career. Hepburn's more popular songs include "Mr. Bus Driver", "You Ga Talk It", "Service Man" and "Sugar Shack".
