Tina Turner (born Anna Mae Bullock, November 26, 1939) is an American R&B, pop, rock and soul singer, Buddhist and occasional actress.
Born in Nutbush (now Brownsville, Tennessee), of African American, Navajo, and Cherokee ancestry. At age 16, she moved to St. Louis, Missouri and became well-known for her high energy performances with The Ike and Tina Turner Revue during the 1960s and 1970s. She is, however, best known for her solo comeback in the mid-1980s. Turner is noted for her overpowering stage presence -- long legs, big hair, and raspy voice. She is sometimes called the Queen of Rock.
In 1991 she was inducted into the St. Louis Walk of Fame.
Her boyfriend is Record Executive, Erwin Bach.
