The effervescent power and beauty of Tina Turner is unequalled in the history of sensual, spiritualized vocalists.. Her resilience in the face of danger, she exploded into the world of entertainment. A country girl who remains the queen of rock and soul music. RIP pic.twitter.com/4iRSTV4PJN— Michael Des Barres (@MDesbarres) May 24, 2023
Our beloved #TinaTurner has died. #Nutbush to the top, she was an absolutely brilliant performer and inspiration to all. May flights of angels sing her to her rest, but if I know Tina, she is singing lead.— bettemidler (@BetteMidler) May 24, 2023

I am saddened to learn about the passing of @tinaturner I met Tina a few times through my pal Donna Summer. I remember her teaching me how to dance at a party. With my two left feet I fell. She picked me up off the floor + we tried again. I'll always be a fan of her and her music pic.twitter.com/Qtar7qPiEs— Stephen Bishop (@BishSongs) May 24, 2023
