Tina Turner, renowned for her powerful voice, passed away at 83 after a long illness, as confirmed by her publicist to the PA news agency.

The Queen of Rock’n Roll died peacefully at her home in Küsnacht, Switzerland, following a prolonged illness. The news was announced on her official Facebook page.

Turner gained fame with hits like “Proud Mary” and “What’s Love Got To Do With It,” along with her dynamic live performances. She retired from touring in 2008.

Over her 60-year career, the American-Swiss singer, originally named Anna Mae Bullock from Nutbush, Tennessee, achieved immense success. She won eight Grammy Awards and earned stars on both the Hollywood Walk of Fame and the St. Louis Walk of Fame.

Tina’s autobiography, “I, Tina,” inspired the 1993 film “What’s Love Got To Do With It,” which depicted her tumultuous relationship with Ike Turner. Angela Bassett’s portrayal of Tina earned her an Oscar nomination.

Known as the Queen of Rock and Roll, Turner married her longtime German partner, music executive Erwin Bach, in a civil ceremony in Switzerland in 2013. They had been living together in Switzerland since 1994.

The music icon was previously married to musician Ike Turner from 1962 to 1978. In her 1986 autobiography, she detailed a harrowing account of abuse, including an incident where she endured a fractured nose.

This final haunting image of her shows a stark contrast to the stunning beauty she once was.

Ike Turner passed away in December 2007. Tina’s spokesperson stated, “Tina is aware of Ike’s recent passing. They hadn’t been in touch for 35 years, and no further comments will be made.”

In recent years, she has faced significant health challenges. She was diagnosed with intestinal cancer in 2016 and underwent a kidney transplant in 2017.
