New York Times best-selling celebrity Mark Bego herin delves into another self-made and strong-willed femail star: internationally renowned soul/pop vocalist Tina Turner. Perhaps the defining R&B singer of her generation, having won Grammies for "Proud Mary" (with then-husband and musical parner Ike) in 1972 and "What's Love Got to Do With It?" in 1984, Turner's uncanny ability to blend soul and rock has allowed her to capture and sustain a mass audience for forty years and counting. A consistently energetic and engaging live performer, her solo hits-including "Private Dancer," "Better Be Good to Me," "Simply the Best," and the remake of teh Al Green classic "Let's Stay Together"-continue to win her new fans. Beyond the public glitz, outrageous costumes, and well-known exploits with ex-husband and long-time musical partner Ike Turner, the songstress born Anna Mae Bullock has lived an extraordinary life. This revealing, detailed biography not only gives the full story of Turner's dazzling five-decade professional career, but also thoroughly explores her turbulent personal affairs. From her modest beginnings as a back-up singer for Ike and their debut single, "A Fool in Love," to her successful 1980s comeback and the conferring of her "rock goddess" status during the last decasde of the twentieth century, Tina Turner is the authoritative portrait of the flamboyant superstar with the unmistakable voice.
