Biography

Tina Turner (born Anna Mae Bullock on 26 November 1939, Nutbush, Tennessee, USA) is a Grammy-winning multi-platinum rock/soul, r&b/pop singer, songwriter, actress, and author. She is the most successful female rock artist of all time: the Acid Queen or The Queen of Rock ‘n’ Roll. She started her storied career by joining Ike Turner to form The Ike & Tina Turner Revue in 1960. They had a string of hits like A Fool In Love, It’s Gonna Work Out Fine, a cover of Creedence Clearwater Revival’s “Proud Mary, and the autobiographical Nutbush City Limits and were widely admired by their audiences and peers.

After her divorce from Ike Turner (he had been abusing her for many years) she took on a solo career in the late 70’s. It wasn’t until 1983, with the release of a cover of Al Green’s “Let’s Stay Together”, that she proceeded to make one of the greatest comebacks in history of music. Her 5th solo album “Private Dancer” produced numerous hits and earned her four Grammy Awards. In 1985, she starred in “Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome” beside Mel Gibson and not only gained a NAACP Image Award for her performance as Aunty Entity, but also received a Grammy nomination for “We Don’t Need Another Hero”, a song from the film’s soundtrack. Next, Tina brought her story to the the public through her best-selling biography “I, Tina”, written with Kurt Loder. She followed “Private Dancer” with “Break Every Rule” and “Foreign Affair”. Each album was followed by successful world tours. Tina Turner announced that she would be retiring after the “Foreign Affair” Tour.
