small star TINA TURNER small star

Her powerful voice and the raw intensity of her stage shows brought Tina Turner rhythm & blues fame in the 1960s. Born Anna Mae Bullock in Nutbush, Tennessee, she moved to St. Louis at age 16. She was a student at Sumner High School when she joined Ike Turner and the Kings of Rhythm. With the 1960 hit "A Fool In Love," they became the Ike & Tina Turner Revue. In 1977 Tina left to pursue a solo career that took her to the top of the Pop, Rock and R & B charts. She won three 1984 Grammy Awards, including Record of the Year for "What's Love Got To Do With It." In 1991 Tina Turner was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
