When you hear Tina Turner’s one-of-a-kind voice on her signature track, “Proud Mary,” there’s an undeniable magic that happens. That’s how it goes when listening to much of her extensive catalog. Sadly, it’s with a heavy heart, the world learned that Tina Turn has peacefully died in her sleep at the age of 83.

An undeniable powerhouse who pioneered several contemporary genres, from rock and roll, Rhythm and Blues, to country, Tina enchanted millions.

Born Anna Mae Bullock in Nutbush, Tennessee, Turner rocketed onto the scene in the late 1960s as the singer of the Ike & Tina Turner Revue. Although her career was enmeshed and impacted by her turbulent relationship and marriage with Ike Turner, Tina went on to show the world she was so much more than her past.

“With her, the world loses a music legend and a role model.” - Tina’s family said in a statement to the public

Tina isn’t merely a gifted pop icon but a symbol of resiliency, humility, determination, and grit. An inspiration to any of us who’ve been let down, thrown around, and expected to remain silent. Her story is the story for so many of us - okay-okay, minus the glitz and glam. And her story is a reminder that we can all rise above our struggles and blossom.
