Tina Turner: Singer Remembered for Hits Like “What’s Love Got to Do With It” and Movie and Broadway Stardom

From a Wall Street Journal obit by John Jurgensen headlined “Tina Turner, Powerful Rock and R&B Singer, Is Dead at 83”:

Tina Turner, the performer whose powerhouse singing and dancing took her from a barnstorming R&B music revue to the peak of pop stardom, has died.

She was an eight-time Grammy winner with a textured voice that transmitted raw emotion in songs like “River Deep—Mountain High” and “What’s Love Got to Do With It.” She whipped up audiences with a stage presence that was both frenzied and sensual, and an influence on performers from Mick Jagger to Beyoncé. And she put her fierce magnetism to work in movies such as “Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome,” in which she played a post-apocalyptic villain.
