When it comes to music, few artists have achieved the level of success that Tina Turner has. A Grammy winner, an inductee into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, and an icon in every sense of the word, her legacy will forever be remembered by fans around the world. To pay tribute to the late singer, acclaimed actress, Angela Bassett recently posted a tribute to Turner on social media.
Bassett’s statement reads: “I am honored to have known Tina Turner. She was a beacon of light, a swaggering titan of artistry whose music has been etched in my heart since childhood. She was a powerful force who lived life on her own terms and never stopped pushing forward. Instead, you reached deep into your soul, found your inner Tina, and showed her to the world. And Tina Turner is a gift that will always be ‘simply the best.’”
The statement clearly conveys the admiration and respect that Bassett has for Turner. It’s easy to see why the actress felt compelled to pay tribute to her, as Turner has had a profound impact on her own life and career.
Throughout her decades-long career, Turner has had numerous hits that have been loved by generations. Her smash hit ‘What’s Love Got To Do With It’ earned her countless awards, including three Grammys. Other fan-favorites include ‘Private Dancer’, ‘We Don’t Need Another Hero’, and ‘The Best’.
Turner’s legacy extends far beyond music and entertainment. She has also been recognized for her activism and advocacy work. During her lifetime, Turner used her platform to raise awareness about HIV/AIDS, as well as other causes that she held close to her heart.
As a tribute to Turner’s memory, let’s take a moment to appreciate all that she contributed to the world. Her music remains timeless, her strength and courage serve as inspiration, and her commitment to making a meaningful impact in the lives of others still resonates with us today.
No words can adequately express our love and appreciation for Tina Turner. Thankfully, her music and her legacy will live on forever.
