Wishing a happy 83rd birthday to Tina Turner!
Tina has had several health setbacks in recent years including a stroke and suffered the loss of a son in 2018. But after completing a new autobiography she showed in interviews that she is one helluva survivor. In the fall of 2018, a musical based on her life opened on Broadway.
She came back from years of domestic violence at the hands of ex-husband and ex-singing partner Ike Turner with whom she had such hits as A Fool in Love, River Deep – Mountain High, Proud Mary and Nutbush City Limits.
On her own she’s been a far bigger star with so many hits including Simply the Best, Let’s Stay Together, We Don’t Need Another Hero , Better Be Good to Me, Private Dancer, I Don’t Wanna Fight, Typical Male and What You Get Is What You See.
Happy birthday to a legend!
