Tina Turner, legendary music star passes on at 83
Legendary music artiste, Tina Turner, has died at the age of 83
The celebrated singer died at her house in Switzerland following a long illness.
“Tina Turner, the ‘Queen of Rock’n Roll’ has died peacefully today at the age of 83 after a long illness in her home in Küsnacht near Zurich, Switzerland. With her, the world loses a music legend and a role model,” Sky News said in a report.
The specific cause of her death was not released.
Turner was one of the best-loved female rock singers known for her on-stage charisma and a string of hits
The US-born star sold more than 100 million records worldwide, and is one of the best-selling artistes of all time, earning 12 Grammy Awards.
Most of Turner’s hit songs were written by others, but she enlivened them with a voice that New York Times music critic Jon Pareles called “one of the more peculiar instruments in pop.”
“It’s three-tiered, with a nasal low register, a yowling, cutting middle range and a high register so startlingly clear it sounds like a falsetto,” Pareles wrote in a 1987 concert review.
