The publisher of legendary rock ‘n’ roll singer Tina Turner has died at the age of 83 after a long illness, the publisher told the PA news agency on Wednesday.
Known as the “Queen of Rock ‘n’ Roll,” Turner began her storied career with Ike Turner’s Kings of Rhythm in 1957, eventually launching an extraordinarily successful career as a solo artist.
However, his health has deteriorated in recent years. He was diagnosed with bowel cancer in 2016 and had a kidney transplant in 2017. The cause of death was not disclosed on Wednesday.
A post on Turner’s official Instagram paid homage to his “passion for life without limits.”
The post said, “It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Tina Turner.

Today we say goodbye to a dear friend who left us his greatest work: his music. All our sincere affection goes to his family. Tina. , We will miss you so much.”
