[ # ] RIP Tina Turner
May 24th, 2023 under Obits, Tina Turner

Tina Turner passed away today at the age of 83 after a long illness.

“It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Tina Turner,” Peter Lindbergh announced. “With her music and her boundless passion for life, she enchanted millions of fans around the world and inspired the stars of tomorrow. Today we say goodbye to a dear friend who leaves us all her greatest work: her music. All our heartfelt compassion goes out to her family. Tina, we will miss you dearly.”

Turner was one of the most iconic singers of the 20th Century. Her voice was so powerful that she was given the title Queen of Rock’n’Roll. And she was a Queen among the peasants of singers.

She sang Proud Mary, and we were proud of her. But not as proud as when the singer finally walked away from her abusive husband and singing partner, Ike Turner.

Turner told her story about breaking free for him, and it helped other women walk away from the abusive people in their lives. She gave them the strength to do it. She taught women we can stand on our own, and we did.

But we didn’t have the legs that she had! So that is why she had those beauties insured.

With all of the hardships she had in her life, she found true love and married her soulmate ten years ago. Erwin Bach loved her so much that in 2017, he gave her one of his kidneys to keep her around longer.

But today, he lost her, and so did we. She might be gone, but her music will live on. So, let’s sing one of her legendary songs, like What’s Love Got to Do with It or Better Be Good to Me so that our voices can lift her up to heaven.
