Tina Turner’s Music Career Set to Make a Debut on Broadway
At the age of 79, Tina enjoys a longstanding music career which has brought her more fame and fortune than she could ever ask for – what more does she need in life? She was born in rural Tennessee as Anna Mae Bullock in 1938. She ruled over the music industry with Ike Turner in the 60s before making a successful solo debut. Tina met Ike in St. Louis during one of his performances with his band, the Kings of Rhythm in 1956. The pair got married in 1962 and released hit tracks like A Fool in Love and a string of other chart-topping singles.
The life of Tina as a professional solo singer started after her divorce with Ike in 1978. Her records sold over 20 million copies around the world with three Grammy Awards for her hard work. In 2018, she got a Grammy Award to recognize her lifetime of incredible achievements.
As one of the most celebrated figures in the music industry, it is a no brainer that her career is an inspiration to other aspiring female artists.
The Singer’s story is featured in The Tina Turner Musical, a Broadway musical that is set to grace the theatres in New York. Hollywood actress, Adrienne Warren stars as the iconic singer and she has poured her heart and soul into the show to do justice to Tina’s exuberant career. The singer handpicked the actress herself and took time in training her to mimic her in the shows.
