Tina Turner Bio
Tina Turner the most dynamic female soul singer in the history of the music oozed sexuality from every pore in a performing career that began the moment she stepped onstage as lead singer of the Ike & Tina Turner Revue in the late ’50’s. Her gritty and growling performances beat down doors everywhere, looking back to the double-barreled attack of gospel fervor and sexual abandon that had originally formed soul in the early ’50’s. Divorced from Ike in the mid-’70’s, she recorded only occasionally later in the decade but resurfaced in the mid-’80s with a series of hit singles and movie appearances; her high-profile status was assured well into the ’90’s.
Born Annie Mae Bullock near Brownsville, TN, she began singing as a teen, and joined Ike Turner’s touring show as an 18-year-old backup vocalist. Just two years later, Tina was the star of the show, the attention-grabbing focal point for an incredibly smooth-running soul revue headed by Ike and his Kings of Rhythm. The couple began hitting the charts in 1960 with “A Fool in Love,” and notched charting singles throughout the ’60’s, “River Deep-Mountain High” was cited by Phil Spector as one of his best productions. All expectations were filled in 1971 with “Proud Mary,” a number four hit which became the capstone of Ike & Tina’s Revue. Frustrated by Ike’s increasingly irrational behavior, though, Tina walked out just three years later.
She celebrated her new-found freedom in 1975 with a role in the film version of The Who’s Tommy. Playing the Acid Queen, she delivered an outrageous, all-too-brief performance. Several albums were recorded for United Artists during the late ’70’s. Tina returned in 1983, first teaming with a Heaven 17 project named BEF on a remake of the Temptations’ “Ball of Confusion.” Tina’s vocal offering was understandably apocalyptic, and she gained a solo deal with Capitol that same year. Her first single, a cover of Al Green’s “Let’s Stay Together,” hit the Top 30 early in 1984. Second single “What’s Love Got to Do With It” became one of the year’s biggest hits, spending three weeks at number one. Her album Private Dancer included two more Top Ten singles, the title track and “Better Be Good to Me.” With another movie role in 1985 (Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome), she found a number two hit with its theme, “We Don’t Need Another Hero.” Her next big hit followed in 1986 (“Typical Male”), still charting occasionally and selling respectably with albums including 1989’s Foreign Affair, 1996’s Wildest Dreams, and 2000’s Twenty Four Seven.
