A Hell of A Life

The expression A HELL OF A LIFE applied to Tina Turner would not be an understatement. The iconic legendary rocker passed away on Wednesday at 83. I saw the ‘What’s Love Got To Do It’ singer twice in concert, first at the age of four with my mother, then years later as a college student.

My favorite Songs by Turner.

Annie Mae Bullock’s startling comeback is the stuff of legends. One of the few African American artists in heavy rotation on MTV in the mid 80s. The multiple Grammy winner emerged as a cultural force in the music video age filling concert stadiums, writing best seller books and starring in films. Turner crossed all lines, age, race, gender and class with universal appeal.
