Tina first landed in the spotlight as the lead singer of duo Ike & Tina Turner Revue, before splitting from him and launching her career as a solo artist, dubbed "one of the greatest comebacks in music history."

She went on to release six successful solo albums; Private Dancer, What’s Love Got to Do with it, Tina Live, Foreign Affair, Wildest Dreams and Break Every Rule.
The Proud Mary hitmaker appeared on the second cover of Rolling Stone in 1967, making her the first black and female artist to do so.
