President Joe Biden's statement on Tina Turner's passing

Prior to her reign as the Queen of Rock and Roll, Tina Turner was the Tennessee farm boy's daughter. She sang in the church choir. 

When she was a small child before going on to become one of the most well-known recording artists of all time.

She was the only female to win 12 Grammy Awards, and she did it in the pop, rock, and R&B categories, proving her versatility.

Innovation, and broad appeal. Many people came to her performances. She was known for her very energetic dancing performances. Additional to that. 

Her timeless singles like "Proud Mary," "The Best," and "What's Love Got to Do with It" are still cherished and loudly sung by successive generations of fans.

In addition to having a unique gift that eternally altered American music, Tina also possessed a great amount of inner fortitude.  

She overcame difficulties, including abuse, and created a life and legacy that were uniquely her own.To her husband Erwin, the rest.  

Of the Turner family, and the millions of followers who think she was "simply the best," Jill and I extend our condolences and prayers.
