'Mark Bego delves into the life of another self-made and strong-willed female star - internationally renowned soul/pop vocalist Tina Turner. Perhaps the defining R&B singer of her generation, having won Grammys for 'Proud Mary' (with then-husband and long-time musical partner Ike Turner) in 1972 and 'What's Love Got to Do with It?' in 1984, Turner's uncanny ability to blend soul and rock has allowed her to capture and sustain a mass audience for forty years and counting. A consistently energetic and engaging performer, her solo hits - including 'Private Dancer,' 'Better Be Good to Me,' 'Simply the Best,' and the remake of the Al Green classic 'Let's Stay Together' - continue to win her new fans.' From her modest beginnings as a backup singer for Ike and their debut single 'A Fool in Love' to her successful 1980s comeback and the conferring of her 'rock goddess' status during the last decade of the twentieth century, Tina Turner is the authoritative portrait of the flamboyant superstar with the unmistakable voice.
