‘Queen of Rock ‘n’ Roll’ Tina Turner passes away at age 83

Tina Turner, the pioneering queen of rock ‘n’ roll who forged one of the longest, loudest, and most revolutionary careers in music history, has died aged 83.

The impact of the Tennessee native’s commanding voice and dynamic stage presence resounded far beyond her multiple Grammy-winning hits like “Proud Mary,” “River Deep, Mountain High,” “What’s Love Got to Do With It” and “Simply the Best.”

Admired for her music, tenacity and courage after overcoming a psychologically and physically abusive marriage, Turner had already achieved a level of global fame when she reemerged on the world stage with her mega-million-selling album “Private Dancer” in 1984.

It made her the first female rock ‘n’ roll artist to become an international superstar on the strength of a solo album.

The album, full of classic hits like “What’s Love Got to Do With It” and “Better Be Good to Me,” earned four Grammys and sold some 20 million albums around the world.

Her many accomplishments, both personal and professional, earned her a place in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and one of pop music’s most devoted fan bases.
