https://www.huffpost.com/entry/tina-tur ... 2b0d1a775fTina Turner, the dynamic rock and R&B icon whose career spanned decades, died Wednesday, at her home near Zurich, Switzerland, a representative told Reuters. She was 83.
Turner died peacefully after a long illness, Reuters said.
The singer’s life was marked by perseverance and a knack for reinvention, creating hits like 1971’s “Proud Mary” and 1984’s “What’s Love Got To Do With It.” Touring the globe, she shared stages with the likes of David Bowie and Mick Jagger, starred in a “Mad Max” flick and watched Beyoncé perform in her honor in 2005.
She may be best remembered for her fiery vocals and onstage energy. But Turner’s offstage presence was a quieter one influenced by an upbringing in the segregated South.
She has gone to sing with the other R&B greats. R.I.P.
