Barack Obama, the former President of the United States, took to Twitter to pay tribute to the legendary Tina Turner, who passed away at the age of 83.
He wrote, “Tina Turner was an extraordinary woman. Her raw power, unstoppable spirit, and unapologetic way of speaking and singing her truth inspired generations of music lovers. Her legacy will live on forever.”
Obama further mentioned, “Today we join fans around the world in honoring the Queen of Rock and Roll and thanking her for a lifetime of incredible music that has rocked the world and touched our hearts.”
Tina Turner was an American-born singer who rose from a farming community to become one of the most successful recording artists of all time. With hits such as “What’s Love Got to Do with It” and “The Best,” she made a profound impact on the world of music.
The legendary artist passed away peacefully in her home in Küsnacht, near Zurich, Switzerland, after a long illness.
