Tina Turner Biography  

Tina Turner has become one of the most commercially-successful international female rock stars to date. Her sultry, powerful and throaty voice; her boundless stage energy; her trademark sexy legs; her everlasting beauty; and her memorable life story all make her one of the sexiest and most popular international performer of the 20th century.

Tina Turner was born on November 26, 1939 in rural Tennessee. Her father was a farm overseer and a church deacon (a cleric ranking just below a priest in the Anglican Church). Tina was an invention of Ike Turner, a noted pioneer of rock and roll, whom she later married. Tina began singing as a teen, and joined Ike Turner's touring show as an 18-year old back-up vocalist. Just two years later, Tina was the star of the show. Tina and her husband began hitting the charts in 1960 with “A Fool in love,” and notched charting singles throughout the 1960s. Ike’s increasingly abusive behavior led Tina to abruptly leave him in 1976. Around this time she appeared solo in a memorable cameo as the gypsy acid queen in the film of the Who’s Tommy Rock Opera.

Tina finalized her divorce in 1978 after 18 years of marriage on grounds of several spousal abuse and drug addiction. Tina has two natural sons (one is Ike's, the other from a previous relationship with a musician from the Kings of Rhythm). After the break up, she began extensive touring to pay the bills and released many solo albums. She led extensive world tours in the 1980 and 1990 and released several more successful albums. In 1995 she recorded the title theme of the James Bond movie, Golden Eye. After her ‘Twenty Four Seven Millennium Tour’ in 2000, Tina announced her retirement from stage shows, but she said she would record and play live on a smaller scale. Tina was also nominated for a Grammy Award (with Ike Turner) for her rhythmic performance in "Proud Mary" in 1971 and American Music Award for best female vocalist and best female video performer, in 1984. Despite changing the direction of her working life, Tina will always be remembered as the undisputed Queen of Rock and Roll in music history.
