Tina Turner, born Anna Mae Bullock, is a singer, dancer, and actress whose career has spanned six decades and garnered numerous awards, including eight Grammys. After her early hit songs “River Deep—Mountain High” and “Proud Mary,” Tina’s well-publicized hardships forced her to virtually disappear from the music scene. In the 1970s, she began practicing Buddhism and rebuilt her life by tapping into her spiritual strength. She rose up to recreate her career with a string of megahits, including her 1984 album Private Dancer. In 1986, she published a bestselling memoir, I, Tina, which became the 1993 Academy Award-nominated film What’s Love Got to Do with It. Her follow-up book, My Love Story, was a global success in 2018. One of the world’s most popular entertainers, Tina has sold more concert tickets than any other solo music artist in history. During her 50th Anniversary Tour (2008-2009), she performed for more than a million fans. Tina resides with her husband, Erwin Bach, in Zürich, Switzerland.
