Tina Turner performs at the World Music Theater
Tina Turner, the American-born singer became one of the top recording artists of all time, died on Wednesday at the age of 83.
The news was shared on Turner’s Instagram account on Wednesday.
She died peacefully after a long illness in her home in Küsnacht near Zurich, Switzerland, her representative said.
Turner sold over 100 million records worldwide with huge songs including “The Best” and “What’s Love Got to Do With It.”
She scored her first and only No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart with the latter tune during her career comeback in 1984. Turner was 44 at the time, making her the oldest solo female artist to top the Hot 100 chart.
The song won three Grammys in 1985 and in 2012 was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame, giving Turner her third Grammy Hall of Fame Award.
Our Prayers to her family and loved ones. Truly a class act and iconic performer.
