The New York Times: Γιορτάζοντας τη ζωή της Tina Turner – Tina Turner, 1939-2023

Tina Turner, 1939-2023
The singer Tina Turner, an unforgettable live performer and one of the most successful recording artists of all time, has died at 83 at her home in Switzerland, near Zurich. The cause of her death was not announced; she had a stroke in recent years and was known to be struggling with a kidney disease and other illnesses.
Turner embarked on her half-century career in the late 1950s, while still attending high school, when she began singing with Ike Turner and his band, the Kings of Rhythm. She soon became the group’s star attraction — and Turner’s wife — and the ensemble was renamed the Ike and Tina Turner Revue.
But Ike Turner was abusive, and after she escaped the marriage in her 30s, her career faltered. Her solo album “Private Dancer,” released in 1984, returned her to the spotlight — and lifted her into the pop stratosphere. The album would go on to sell five million copies and ignite a career that established her as a worldwide phenomenon.
In her own words: “My music doesn’t sound dated; it’s still standing strong,” she said in 2008. “Like me.”
Simply the best: “She was truly an enormously talented performer and singer,” Mick Jagger wrote on Instagram. “She was inspiring, warm, funny and generous. She helped me so much when I was young and I will never forget her.” Read other tributes.
