Tina Turner - May 20th

Tina Turner --- born Anna Mae Bullock in Nutbush, Tennessee. Her parents had a volatile relationship and often left Anna Mae and her sister with relatives - sometimes together, sometimes separately. Anna Mae was finally abandoned for good when she was 13. In her late teens, her grandmother passed away and she headed to St. Louis to be with her mom - a difficult relationship that remained strained throughout her mother's lifetime. Turner is listed on Rolling Stone's list "The Immortals — The Greatest Artists of All Time". She is a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, and three of her recordings, "River Deep - Mountain High", "Proud Mary" and "What's Love Got To Do With It" are in the Grammy Hall of Fame. Tina has won 8 Grammy Awards and has sold more than 100 million records over a 50-plus year career.
