Tina Turner dies at 83
Singer, dancer, actress and author Tina Turner “died peacefully today at the age of 83 after a long illness,” her publicist said on Wednesday. She spent her last days at her home in Kusnacht near Zurich.
“With her, the world loses a music legend and a role model,” the publicist added.
Turner had a long and storied career, accompanied by a turbulent personal life. Born Anna Mae Bullock in the US state of Tennessee in 1939, she started performing with Ike Turner in 1957. By 1960, she debuted under the stage name Tina Turner, with a hit duet ‘A Fool in Love.’
