Tina Turner

Simply the Best

“She was a role model not only for me, but for the world,” said Oprah Winfrey on the recent passing of the legendary Tina Turner. From her high-voltage performances that welcomed in a new era of rock’n’roll in the 60s, to reinventing herself as a chart-busting solo artist and movie star in the 80s, Tina Turner was a global superstar – but she always had extra special status in Australia.
