You know you’ve done something right in your life, and you know that you are adored when there is a musical based on your life. “Tina: The Tina Turner Musical” opened in London on April 17, 2018 and made it’s Broadway debut over a year later, on November 7, 2019.
In a career that spanned 50 years, Tina’s music portfolio features popular fan favorites like Proud Mary, River Deep – Mountain High, We Don’t Need Another Hero, What’s Love Got To Do With It, The Best, I Want to Take You Higher, Private Dancer, and (this writer’s personal favorite) Better Be Good To Me to name just a few.
