Tina Turner, a Legendary Singer, Passes Away at 83

Tina Turner, a singer known for her presence in the rock and roll industry, passed away on Wednesday at the age of 83.
She died peacefully after a long illness in her home in Kusnacht, Switzerland, according to her representative.

Turner began her career in the 1950s and evolved into an MTV phenomenon, known for her style and unique voice.

She won six of her eight Grammy Awards in the 1980s and had a successful career, with numerous hit songs and concerts in Rio de Janeiro that drew over 180,000 people.

Turner was known for her bravery in speaking out about the abuse she suffered from her former husband Ike Turner during their marital and musical partnership in the 1960s and 1970s.

Her death was met with condolences from fellow musicians and fans.

Tina Turner, known for her powerful voice and energetic performances, was discovered by Ike Turner at age 17 and went on to become a successful singer and performer.

She rose to fame with her husband Ike Turner and their band, the Ike and Tina Turner Revue, before leaving him in 1976 after a violent incident.

She later had a successful solo career, including the hit song "What's Love Got to Do with It" and the album "Private Dancer," which sold over 200 million records worldwide.

She retired from show business in 2009 and currently resides in Switzerland with her partner, Erwin Bach.
