Oprah’s moving tribute to Tina
From one icon to another. Oprah shared a heartfelt post on OprahDaily.com today about her “shero” Tina Turner, who has passed away aged 83. Of her relationship with the “forever goddess of rock ’n’ roll,” she says: “I started out as a fan I would’ve been fine remaining a Tina groupie, but becoming her friend was a blessing in my lifetime.” Oprah remembers the monumental moments in their friendship, and celebrates Turner’s devoted husband Erwin and everything he did to help her in her years of ailing health. “She once shared with me that when her time came to leave this earth, she would not be afraid, but excited and curious. Because she had learned how to LIVE surrounded by her beloved husband, Erwin, and friends. I am a better woman, a better human, because her life touched mine. She was indeed simply the best,” Oprah writes. Read the full post here.
