Multiple Tributes On Instagram
Al Roker’s wife noted there was no doubt in her mind that Tina Turner was “absolutely incredible” and the world lost a legend when she passed away.
But Tina Turner’s memory will live on full throttle. Her energetic performance will always be a cherished memory for me. Watching her dazzle her Madison Square Garden audience of fans and devotees just a few years ago, was simply the best! I’ll never forget seeing Tina shake and shimmer to Proud Mary on the Ed Sullivan show when I was a kid.
