An amazing tribute to Tina Turner.

A devout fan of Tina's from the first time I heard her. I'm only a short 3 years younger than she, so it's been a long time that I've followed her. I literally sobbed when I heard she had passed, and I'm not one given to tears. This tribute to her does real justice to her courage, talent, power and strength. Simply the best!

I do remember Tina Turner over the decades. I didn't realize how old she really was. Anyway she lived over 80 years.

Little known fact: Tina was a devout Buddhist.

I had the great privilege to see her perform live at Live Aid. Her duet of "It's Only Rock and Roll" with Mick Jagger was amazing. There they were...these two music icons strutting their stuff together...not only in sync with their voices, but with their musical physicality. Their backing band was Hall and Oates, our local boys from the great city of Philadelphia themselves playing right there on a Philly stage with those two legends...a musical memory for the ages for sure. Peace to Tina. ๐ŸŽผโ˜ฎ๏ธ๐Ÿ’™

That voice. Those legs. What a force Tina was. Consummate performer. I was rescued from the throes of detoxing from Vicodin one early morning at 2:00 a.m. in 1991 in coming across a duo show with Tina Turner and David Bowie. Iโ€™ll always remember that amazing show.

I had the great pleasure of experiencing Ms. Turner's talent several times in the 60's at The Fillmore West. She was an incredible talent the outshone her abusive husband Ike. Once she was free of him her life improved immensely. When Bill Graham decided to close The Fillmore, he went on the San Francisco FM station KSAN for almost three days sharing his remembrance of artists who performed there. He spoke of Tina's work with Ike and the things she did to keep the show going. Rehearsing in their motel rooms when a new back-up singer was needed as well as putting up with Ike. RIP Tina!

Thank you. As a 77 year old woman, I appreciated the impact Tina had on my life & soul. As I dance around my yard to "Proud Mary," I will smile in the joy she gave me. Thank you, Tina!
