Tina Turner's name will go down in history as one of the most talented and greatest stars of all time!

The star was born on 26 November 1939 as Anna Mae Bullock. 

Her music career started when she was just a teenager, performing with Ike Turner who later became her husband. The couple split in the 1970s.

Tina Turner is definitely a force to be reckoned with in the entertainment industry. 

She is known as the 'Queen of Rock 'n' Roll'. 

One of her biggest albums is 'Private Dancer', which featured the song, 'What's Love Got To Do'. It is her fifth studio album which she released in 1984 and was nominated for a Grammy Award for Album of the Year, and Juno Award for International Album of the Year. Tina was the first black artist and first female to be on the cover of Rolling Stone in its second edition in November 1967.

She is one of the best-selling artists of our time, having sold over 100-million records.

When it comes to awards, Tina has received three Grammy Hall of Fame awards and Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, just to name a few. 

The legendary singer retired in 2007, but her music continues to dominate radio stations, parties, weddings, and events.
