Tina Turner, the Queen of Rock ‘n’ Roll, has died at the age of 83. Turner, originally named Anna Mae Bullock, gained attention in the music world in 1970, after joining forces with her then-husband, Ike Turner. With him, she recorded hits like “Proud Mary” and “Nutbush City Limits”.
After her divorce from Ike Turner in 1976, Turner went solo and achieved immense success, with hit songs like “What’s Love Got to Do with It”, “The Best”, and “Private Dancer”. Turner sold out arenas and stadiums around the world and was the first ever female singer to headline a stadium concert in the US in 1988.
Her success led to her induction to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1991. Along with this honor, Turner was awarded an honorary doctorate from Berklee College of Music in Massachusetts in 2019.
Turner’s rising career eventually concluded with an impressive 11-album discography, featuring hits spanning across four decades. Thanks to her amazing success as a musician, Turner was also awarded an Academy Award and a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2019.
