Queen of rock Tina Turner dies at 83

Tina Turner, whose soul classics and pop hits made her a superstar, has died at the age of 83.

The ‘Queen of Rock & Roll’ died peacefully after a long illness in her home in Küsnacht near Zurich, Switzerland,” her family said in a statement Wednesday.

The raspy-voiced fireball who overcame domestic abuse and industry ambivalence to emerge as one of rock and soul’s brassiest, most rousing and most inspirational performers.

A cause of death was not immediately available, though Turner had a stroke and battled both kidney failure and intestinal cancer in recent years.

She rose to fame alongside husband Ike in the 1960s with songs including Proud Mary and River Deep, Mountain High.

She divorced the abusive Ike in 1978, and went on to find even greater success as a solo artist in the 1980s.
