Tina Turner has had an amazing life. Rising from the bottom, she became a star on the back of a stellar voice and incredible showwomanship. But it hasn’t all been wonderful for Turner, as recent years have seen her suffer from a near-fatal illness. But she pulled through, and in 2019, celebrated her 80th birthday. And to mark the occasion, the singer shared her view on her life, health and future with fans in a video.

Named Anna Mae Bullock when she was born in 1939, Turner changed her name after hooking up with Ike Turner. They made a highly successful musical duo until she struck out on her own, penniless and at a low. Not many people are able to remake themselves and succeed a second time, but this force of nature would once again become a household name.
