Tina Turner (born Anna Mae Bullock; November 26, 1939) is an American-born Swiss singer, songwriter, dancer, and actress. Known as The Queen of Rock 'n' Roll, Turner rose to prominence as part of the Ike & Tina Turner Revue before launching a successful career as a solo performer. Turner is noted for her energetic stage presence, powerful vocals, trademark legs, and career longevity.

Turner began her recording career as a featured singer with Ike Turner's Kings of Rhythm under the name "Little Ann" on "Boxtop" in 1958. Her introduction to the public as Tina Turner began in 1960 with the hit single "A Fool in Love". She married Ike Turner in 1962. The duo went on to become "one of the most formidable live acts in history" and released notable hits such as "It's Gonna Work Out Fine", "River Deep – Mountain High", the Grammy-winning "Proud Mary", and "Nutbush City Limits".[4] Raised a Baptist, she became an adherent of Nichiren Buddhism in 1973, crediting the spiritual chant of Nam Myoho Renge Kyo with helping her to endure during difficult times. Ike & Tina Turner disbanded in 1976, ending both their personal and their musical partnership; they divorced in 1978. In her 1986 autobiography, I, Tina: My Life Story, Turner revealed that she had been subjected to domestic violence.
The duo signed with Blue Thumb Records in 1968, releasing the album Outta Season in 1969. The album produced their charted cover of Otis Redding's "I've Been Loving You Too Long". Later that year they released The Hunter. The title track, Albert King's "The Hunter" earned Tina a Grammy nomination for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance.[47] The success of the albums led to the revue headlining in Las Vegas where their shows were attended by a variety of celebrities including David Bowie, Sly Stone, Janis Joplin, Cher, James Brown, Ray Charles, Elton John, and Elvis Presley.Turner's success continued when she traveled to Australia to star opposite Mel Gibson in the 1985 post-apocalyptic film Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome. The movie provided her with her first acting role in ten years; she portrayed the glamorous Aunty Entity, the ruler of Bartertown.[113] Upon release, critical response to her performance was generally positive.[114] The film became a global success, making more than $36 million in the United States alone.[115] Turner later received the NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Actress for her role in the film.[116] She also recorded two songs for the film, "We Don't Need Another Hero (Thunderdome)" and "One of the Living"; both became hits with the latter winning her a Grammy Award for Best Female Rock Vocal Performance.[47] In July 1985, Turner performed at Live Aid alongside Mick Jagger.[117] Their performance shocked observers when Jagger ripped her skirt off.[118][13] Turner released a duet, "It's Only Love", with Bryan Adams.[119] It was nominated for a Grammy Award, and the music video won an MTV Video Music Award for Best Stage Performance.[
