Tina Turner, the inflexible singer and stage performer, who teamed with her husband, Ike Turner, for a dynamic run of hit records and live shows in the 1960s and ’70s and survived her horrifying marriage to triumph in middle age with the chart-topping ‘What’s Love Got to Do With It,’ has died at 83.
As gathered, Turner died on Tuesday, after a long illness in her home in Küsnacht near Zurich, Switzerland, according to her manager.
Her team in a statement on Wednesday confirmed that Turner who became a Swiss citizen a decade ago died at the age of 83, and the statement, posted to her social media pages, read. “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.”
