The last image of legendary singer Tina Turner before her sad demise has surfaced online.
Tina Turner’s latest snapshot on social media shows her in her vacation clothes, sitting at home and reflecting on her incredible and fulfilling life.
The legendary singer died at eighty-three, it was revealed Wednesday, May 24, from a post on her Instagram account.
The legend’s last post on her Instagram was on the fifth anniversary of the musical “Tina” just four weeks before her death.
The rock ‘n’ roll queen rarely shared new photos of herself, but she gave fans a rare look as she stood before a big-screen TV and confessed her excitement about her documentary.
Tina smiled, happily clenching her fists in anticipation of the new HBO documentary “Tina,” telling fans, “I am delighted to share this film with you – watching the concert scenes made me relive some of the proudest and brightest moments of my life. I just had to sing along and dance in my living room watching this movie.”
This is one of the last times fans have seen the legendary Tina Turner, as she has largely withdrawn from public life after several years of health problems.
In addition to having a stroke and battling colon cancer in her final years, Tina also suffered from kidney failure, which led to a kidney transplant in 2017.
On International Kidney Day, the What’s Love Got To Do With It singer urged fans to watch out for themselves.
She said: “My kidneys were a victim of not realizing that my high blood pressure needed to be treated with traditional medicine.
“I put myself in great danger by refusing to accept that I needed daily, lifelong therapy with medication. For too long, I believed my body was an untouchable and indestructible bastion.”
Tina’s death was confirmed on May 24 by her publicist Bernard Dougherty.
In a statement, her spokesman said a private funeral would be held for her close friends and family.
Tina, born Anna Mae Bullock, won eight Grammy Awards and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame during a career spanning more than 60 years.
She is survived by her second husband, Erwin Bach, and sons, Ike and Michael.
