Tina Turner, who died Wednesday after a protracted illness, was remembered by two presidents.
Turner was 83. “Once-in-a-generation talent that changed American music.
Forever said President Joe Biden.“Tina’s personal strength was remarkable.
Biden said. “Overcoming adversity, and even abuse, she built a career for the ages and a life and legacy entirely hers.”
Obama tweeted, "Tina Turner was raw." She ruled. She was unstoppable.
She was shamelessly herself—speaking and singing her truth through joy and agony; success and tragedy.”
After a "long illness," the 83-year-old singer died at home in Küsnacht, Switzerland, near Zurich.
The 12-time Grammy winner sang "Proud Mary," "The Best," "Private Dancer," and "What's Love Got to Do With It" over a decades-long career.
