Tina Turner, born Anna Mae Bullock, is a singer and actress whose career has spanned more than sixty years. She has won numerous awards, including eight Grammys. Tina began her music career with her husband Ike Turner as a member of the Ike & Tina Turner Revue.

In 1986, she published a bestselling memoir I Tina which was turned into the Academy Award-nominated film What’s Love Got to Do with It in 1993. One of the world’s most popular entertainers, Tina has sold more concert tickets than any other solo music performer in history. She lives with her husband, Erwin Bach, in Zurich, Switzerland.
