Biden and Obama mourn the loss of a music legend Turner, Tina

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.
