Music legend Tina Turner dies at age 83

The world is mourning the loss of the Queen of Rock ‘n’ Roll, Tina Turner, who passed away peacefully at the age of 83 on Wednesday.

According to her representatives, the beloved singer had succumbed to natural causes after a long battle with cancer, kidney failure, and a stroke. Tina had disclosed her kidney disease last March on International World Kidney Day, and although she had undergone a kidney transplant in April 2017, the illness was ultimately incurable.

Tina had been living in Switzerland for a while, having given up her American citizenship in 2013 following her marriage to her then-boyfriend, German music executive Erwin Bach. Last January, the couple had bought a Swiss “weekend retreat” to ensure their future security.

The death of Tina Turner was shared on her Instagram account, accompanied by a heartfelt message. “It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Tina Turner,” it read. “Her music and her boundless passion for life entranced millions of fans around the globe, and she was an inspiration for many. Tina, we will miss you dearly.”

The news of Tina Turner’s passing has been met with grief and admiration from both fans and celebrities alike. Her legacy will live on in her music and her spirit, and the music industry has been left with a void that will be hard to fill.
