Tina Turner: The Queen of Rock 'n' Roll
Tina Turner was born Anna Mae Bullock in Nutbush, Tennessee in 1939.
She began singing in church and later joined a local rhythm and blues band.
In the early 1960s, she met Ike Turner and joined his band, which eventually became the Ike & Tina Turner Revue.
The duo had several hit songs, including "Proud Mary" and "River Deep – Mountain High."
Turner's marriage to Ike was tumultuous and abusive, and she eventually left him and launched a successful solo career.
Her solo hits include "What's Love Got to Do with It," "Private Dancer," and "The Best."
Turner has won numerous awards, including 12 Grammy Awards and a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Recording Academy.
She retired from performing in 2009 but remains an influential figure in music and pop culture.
