The Queen of Rock and Roll has died at her home in Switzerland at the age of 83 after years of illness.
Tina Turner left behind an incredible legacy, first with ex-husband Ike Turner and then an unprecedented comeback in the 1980s.
At 44, she was the oldest female solo artist to hit the top of the Hot 100 with What Love Got.
The success continued with the likes of Better Be Good To Me, Private Dancer, and the James Bond theme GoldenEye.
In 1989 she released a cover version of Bonnie Tyler’s The Best, which became a worldwide chart hit and was certified platinum in the UK.

It’s clear Brits like (simply) the best since the Welsh Guards Band performed the classic song in Turner’s homage.
The band’s musicians, along with the 1st Battalion Welsh Corps Guards Drummers, played the song at the gates of Buckingham Palace today.
This was during the changing of the guard, which took place in the forecourt of the King’s house at 11 am for about 30 minutes.
According to Forces.net, “It is a ceremony marking the solemn handing over of responsibilities, from the soldiers who were on duty at the Palace, known as the Old Guard,” with the New Guard arriving after a march from Wellington Barracks.
Turner’s fans were in awe of the scene, commenting on social media: “Amazing act! What a sweet tribute to the Queen of Rock and Roll!” Another added: “This is awesome! I love our crazy country.”
