The River Deep, Mountain High Soulfulness Of Tina Turner

The only good thing about a big popstar passing is we get to go back and listen to their music one more time, and that is nothing but pleasure when the titanic Tina Turner is who we are listening to. Tina is one of the most beloved people in modern rock, a towering figure of women power and had how the skilled and genius can turn the tables on an abusive husband. Then make a movie about it.

The mix of black woman and black power was an antidote to toxic male supremacy, she stood mid stage and shook with everyone from Mick Jagger to David Bowie her physicality overwhelmed them. And on record, she was so strong that she kept pace with Phil Spector’s wall of sound. By the time of MTV she was ripe to join Michael Jackson at the top of the food chain with “Private Dance” and “What’s Love Got To Do With it”.

According to Chat.openai:

Tina Turner, born Anna Mae Bullock on November 26, 1939, is an American-born Swiss singer, songwriter, dancer, and actress. She rose to prominence in the 1960s and 1970s as the lead vocalist of the Ike & Tina Turner Revue, a musical duo she formed with her former husband, Ike Turner.

Tina Turner’s powerful voice, energetic stage presence, and dynamic performances made her a renowned figure in the world of rock and soul music. She is often referred to as the “Queen of Rock ‘n’ Roll” and is known for her iconic hits such as “Proud Mary,” “What’s Love Got to Do with It,” “Private Dancer,” and “Simply the Best.”

After her tumultuous marriage to Ike Turner ended in 1978, Tina embarked on a successful solo career. She released several critically acclaimed albums, including “Private Dancer” (1984), which earned her multiple Grammy Awards and solidified her status as a solo artist.

In addition to her musical accomplishments, Tina Turner’s life story has been a source of inspiration for many. She overcame personal and professional challenges, including an abusive relationship, to achieve immense success. Her autobiography, “I, Tina,” was adapted into the biographical film “What’s Love Got to Do with It” in 1993, for which Angela Bassett portrayed Tina Turner and received an Academy Award nomination.

Tina Turner officially retired from performing in 2009 but made a special exception for a one-night-only event in 2013. She has been living in Switzerland since the mid-1990s and became a Swiss citizen in 2013.

Tina Turner’s contributions to music and her enduring legacy as a talented performer have made her one of the most respected and influential artists in the industry.
