It is with a heavy heart that we share the news of the passing of iconic singer, Tina Turner. Known for her powerful voice and captivating performances, Turner died at the age of 83 after a long illness. She passed away peacefully at her home in Küsnacht, Switzerland. Her publicist confirmed the news, and it was also verified on her official Facebook page.

Born Anna Mae Bullock in Nutbush, Tennessee, Tina Turner’s career spanned over 60 years. She was a true legend in the music industry, leaving behind a remarkable legacy. Turner’s hits, including “Proud Mary” and “What’s Love Got To Do With It,” resonated with audiences worldwide. Her on-stage charisma and dynamic performances were in a league of their own. In 2008, Turner retired from touring, leaving fans with memories that will last forever.

Turner was the recipient of numerous accolades throughout her career. She won eight competitive Grammy Awards and has stars on both the Hollywood Walk of Fame and the St Louis Walk of Fame. Her autobiography, “I, Tina,” was adapted into the 1993 film “What’s Love Got To Do With It.” The movie depicted her famously turbulent relationship with Ike Turner. Angela Bassett’s portrayal of Tina earned her an Oscar nomination.

In 2013, Turner married her long-time German beau, music executive Erwin Bach, in a Swiss civil ceremony. Since 1994, she had been living in Switzerland with him. This marriage marked a new chapter in her life, as her first marriage to musician Ike Turner lasted from 1962 to 1978. Ike’s death in December 2007 brought closure to a relationship that had been marked by abuse and turmoil. Turner detailed her harrowing experiences in her 1986 book.

Despite facing health challenges in recent years, Turner remained resilient. She was diagnosed with intestinal cancer in 2016 and underwent a kidney transplant in 2017. Throughout her battles, she continued to inspire fans with her strength and determination. Now, as we say our last goodbye, we remember Tina Turner as the incomparable Queen of Rock and Roll.
