Growing up and learning
The birth of Anna Mae Bullock took place in Brownsville, Tennessee, on November 26, 1939. In a family of three, she is the youngest.
After spending a brief period of time in Knoxville, Tennessee, during World War II, she spent her formative years in Nutbush, Tennessee. When the war was over, Tina’s family relocated to Nutbush, and she no longer attended Flagg Grove Elementary School.
At Spring Hill Baptist Church in Nutbush, she was a member of the choir.
At age eleven, Tina’s mother got separated and her father later remarried in Detroit which led to the migration of Tina alongside her sisters to stay with their grandmother in Brownsville, Tennessee.
Tina later relocated to St. Loius, Missouri after the passing away of their grandmother. There, she studied at Sumner High School before moving in with her mother to stay.
She did some menial jobs as a housekeeper and a nurse assistant at Barnes-Jewish Hospital while she was still an adolescent.
When Tina and her sister began frequenting St. Louis nightclubs, Ike Turner and his band, the Kings of Rhythm, were the first act they saw. She was featured as the band’s vocalist after she successfully won Ike over with her singing abilities.
In 1960, Ike wrote the song “A Fool in Love” on behalf of the performer Art Lassiter, but he did not appear.
Tina was supposed to do backup vocals, but because Ike had already paid for the studio time, he asked her to sing the lead role instead.
With the publication of “A Fool in Love” in July 1960 under the name Ike & Tina Turner, Tina’s musical career was formally established. The Hot R&B Sides chart at No. 2 and the Billboard Hot 100 at No. 27, respectively, were its peak positions, signaling its immediate success.
Ike and Tina co-wrote and co-published the 1961 song “It’s Gonna Work Out Fine,” which received a Grammy nomination for Best Rock & Roll Performance. From 1960 through 1962, some of their other well-known songs include I Idolize You, Poor Fool, and Tra La La.
Ike assembled the Ike & Tina Turner Revue, which featured the Kings of Rhythm and the Ikettes, in his capacity as a bandleader, and they proceeded on a world tour.
Sale of Music Rights
In exchange for the rights to her songs, likeness, and image, Tina agreed to pay BMG Rights Management $50 million in October 2021.
Tina stopped doing live shows in 2009 and is no longer active. She has managed to maintain a presence in the public eye through projects like “Tina,” a musical based on her life that had its London premiere in April 2018 and featured Adrienne Warren.
Moreover, she has published three books. Tina has achieved success as an actress in addition to being a musician. Her first acting performance was in the fantasy drama film Tommy (1975).
The post-apocalyptic movie “Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome” (1985), which was a box office success and took in more than $36 million in the US, also featured her alongside Mel Gibson.
The reviews for her role in the movie were positive.
In 1962, Tina wed her bandmate, Ike Turner. They’d had a son named Ronnie for the last two years. Ronnie, Craig, and Ike’s prior union resulted in two children, who they shared parenting. On March 29, 1978, Ike and Tina got a divorce based on their inability to get along.
In 1986, Tina had a chance encounter with German music industry boss Erwin Bach. Erwin is sixteen years younger than she is. Tina and Erwin relocated to Switzerland in 1995. Particularly Tina had long since fallen in love with the customs and organization of Switzerland.
They spent the next two decades renting a sizable estate on Lake Zurich because they were unable to purchase property there because they were not citizens.
On July 2013, they wed in their estate after dating for 27 years. In January 2013, Tina applied to become a citizen of Switzerland.
In April 2013, she received Swiss citizenship after passing all required examinations. She relinquished her American citizenship in October 2013.
After nearly 30 years of renting in Switzerland, Erwin and Tina finally purchased a property in 2021 after getting Swiss citizenship for both of them. In December 2021, the couple spent an estimated $76 million on a brand-new lakefront home on the beaches of Lake Zurich.
