When it comes to legendary artists, Tina Turner rightly deserves her place amongst the likes of Frank Sinatra, Michael Jackson, Elvis Pressley and Freddie Mercury, not only for her sensational vocals and string of hit records which made her one of the world’s best-selling artists of all time but for the way she transformed the industry.
During a career spanning five decades, Turner certainly stamped her mark on the music industry, notching up no fewer than 10 UK top ten songs, including some of the biggest hits of the decade ‘Simply The Best’, ‘Private Dancer’, ‘What’s Love Got To Do With It’, ‘Steamy Windows’, ‘We Don’t Need Another Hero’ and the theme for the James Bond film ‘Goldeneye’, which continue to be heard on the airwaves today.
While Turner’s music earned her a plethora of hits, it was her personality and live performances which won the hearts of millions of fans worldwide. Despite her tiny stature, Turner was renowned for her huge stage presence and energetic live performances, selling more concert tickets than any other solo performer in music history.
Her illustrious career saw Turner sell over 180 million records and win 9 Grammy Awards, including a Lifetime Achievement Award in 2018. Turner was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1991.
