The Hollywood Reporter

The world of music is in mourning today as we say goodbye to the one and only Tina Turner. The iconic singer passed away at 83 after a long battle with health issues.

Tina Turner was an absolute powerhouse on stage, captivating audiences all over the world with her energy and passion for singing. She began her career in 1960s St Louis where she gained fame as part of Ike & Tina Turner Revue before beginning her solo career in 1973. Her hit songs such as ‘Proud Mary’ and ‘What’s Love Got To Do With It’ have solidified herself as one of the most successful musicians ever, selling more than 200 million records worldwide and inducted into both Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Grammy Hall of Fame.

Her iconic look – having an elaborate hair style, wearing leotards onstage – has been an inspiration to many around the world who wish they could be just like her. She took that same attitude offstage, becoming a role model for females everywhere by embracing their power through self-expression rather than conforming to society’s expectations or norms.

Tina will forever remain an icon in the international music industry for years to come – from being awarded legions awards including 8 Grammys; it’s clear that she will always live on in our hearts through her inspiring message about love, unity & strength no matter what adversities might come our way or how old you are! So let’s all remember this legendary diva together: may our beloved Queen Forever Rest In Peace!
