Tina Turner (born Anna Mae Bullock on November 26, 1939 - some sources say 1938) is a Grammy Award-winning American pop/rock singer, Buddhist and occasional actress. She was born of African American, Navajo, and Cherokee ancestry in the Haywood Memorial Hospital in Brownsville, Tennessee and raised in Nutbush, Tennessee. Tina Turner's dominance in rock and roll throughout the 1980s and 1990s, earned her the title "Queen of Rock & Roll".
At age 16, she moved to St. Louis, Missouri and became well-known for her high energy performances with The Ike and Tina Turner Revue during the 1960s and 1970s. At the height of the revue's success, Tina Turner became as popular a live performer.
Tina Turner was a very popular performer before she split with Ike Turner, but it was her solo comeback in the mid-1980s that propelled her to a level where she would become one of the most successful musicians and rock artists of all time, selling more concert tickets than any other female performer in history. Tina Turner is noted for her overpowering stage presence. Her physical trade marks are her long legs, big hair, and raspy voice....
