Tina Turner – and her impending last interview with HBO

I remember December 1971. I was 17 at the time she sang ‘ Proud Mary ‘.

It wasn’t like Tina was a star at the time. But I knew then and there this is the voice of a star.

In this little town in Lower Austria, the Nightclub ‘ Loewentor ‘, it was there where we heard Tina ( and Ike ) singing Nutbush City, Proud Mary daily for months.

I was fond of Tina from the start, her voice, her dancing style. I was sad to hear she suffered abuse by her then-husband, Ike.

Later I came to Ghana and heard she had performed here in their great gig ‘ Soul to Soul ‘, in which other greats like Wilson Pickett, Santana, The Staple Singers, Roberta Flack, Les McCann, and Eddie Harris, The Voices of East Harlem, were co-performers.

Bibie Brew and Soul to Soul

Our friend, famous star Bibie Brew ( check out Bibie Brew on our channel for more )was a young lady of 15 at the time and narrated the event that took place in Accra’s Independence Square in 1971.

Also present was Malek Krayem (+), ( Malek on africasiaeuro’s youtube channel ), another famous musician in Ghana’s music scene.

I followed Tina throughout her career, loved the many duetts she sang with Eros Ramazzotti, among others.

Then came the movie Mad Max.

She has settled in Nice and Zurich, and sometimes Dubrovnik ( on her Super Yacht ).

She deserves a good and relaxed life. Her contributions to music shall never be forgotten.

We wish you the best for your future Tina. Africasiaeuro.com , Accra, Ghana
