JUST IN: Queen Of Rock And Roll Tina Turner Is Dead

Queen of rock and roll Tina Turner has died aged 83.

Gatekeepers News reports that the US-born star was one of rock’s great vocalists and most charismatic performers.

Her spokesperson, who confirmed this in a statement, said: “Tina Turner, the ‘Queen of Rock’n Roll’ has died peacefully today at the age of 83 after a long illness in her home in Kusnacht near Zurich, Switzerland.

“With her, the world loses a music legend and a role model.”

Tina Turner was one of the best-loved female rock singers, known for her on-stage presence and a string of hits including The Best, Proud Mary, Private Dancer and What’s Love Got to Do With It.

Her classic song River Deep, Mountain High, and other repertoire with her ex-husband Ike Turner brought her to the limelight in the 1960s.

Ike subjected her to domestic abuse and this was documented in a 1993 Hollywood biopic starring Angela Bassett, which won three Oscars.

Tina Turner life story was also immortalised in a popular West End show that is still running.
