According to The Telegraph:
Singer Tina Turner has died at the age of 83 after a long illness in her home in Küsnacht near Zurich, Switzerland, her spokesman has said.
Tina Turner was born Anna Mae Bullock on November 26, 1939, in Nutbush, Tennessee, USA. She became famous in the late 60s as the singer of the band Ike & Tina Turner Revue, but later she became successful worldwide as a solo artist.
With her music and her inexhaustible vitality, Tina Turner thrilled millions of fans and inspired many artists of subsequent generations. Global hits like “What’s Love Got To Do With it”, “Private Dancer” and “The Best”, more than 180 million albums sold, 12 Grammy Awards and over three decades of sold-out stadium tours around the world are just part of her unique legacy.
Her spokesman said: “There will be a private funeral ceremony attended by close friends and family. Please respect the privacy of her family at this difficult time.”
