About the Author

Tina Turner was one of the world's most beloved performers, with a career spanning 60 years. She has sold over 100 million albums worldwide and won 12 Grammys, including 3 Grammy Hall of Fame awards and a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. She was a two-time inductee into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and recipient of the Kennedy Center Honors award. After early success with hit songs such as "River Deep--Mountain High" and "Proud Mary," her well-publicized hardships and abusive marriage to fellow musician Ike Turner forced her to disappear from the music scene. In the late 1970s, she reemerged on the world stage after her divorce from Turner and rose up to recreate her career with a string of megahits including her 1984 album Private Dancer. Her life inspired the 1993 Academy Award-nominated film What's Love Got to Do with It and in 2018 she became the subject of the Broadway musical, Tina. She passed away in May 2023 at her home in Switzerland.


Tina's autobiography is just what you'd expect from the fiery superstar: high-powered, sexy, honest, with apparently nothing held back. Tina was neglected as a child and abandoned at age 10. At 18 she hooked up with talented piano player Ike Turner; two years later, in 1960, they had their first hit record. The couple enjoyed considerable material success, but life with Ike became hell on earth. In 1976, Tina got out, giving up all rights to her and Ike's assets to gain her freedom. Flat broke, she started a comeback that culminated with Private Dancer, her award-winning, multi-million selling, worldwide smash album. Tina has somehow remained compassionate, generous, sober, a gutsy survivor who never lost faith in her exceptional singing and performing talents. A good choice for public libraries. Thomas Jewell, Waltham P.L., Mass.
