Tina Turner - Grammy Awards

February 10, 2008

The Grammy Awards are presented since 1952 by the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences of the United States to recognize achievements in the music industry. Tina Turner won eight Grammy Awards solo and as a member of the Ike & Tina Turner Revue plus five special awards. She was also several times a guest in the audience, as a presenter and as a musical artists. The first time as she received the Grammy for Proud Mary in 1971 and the last time with a video message for the Lifetime Achievement Award in 2018. After she passed away, Oprah Winfrey paid tribute to her in 2024, standing in front of a smiling image of Tina:

“Tina Turner was always a towering figure,” Winfrey said as a guitarist started playing the iconic guitar riff for “Proud Mary” to back her. “She is our forever goddess of rock & roll, who inspired millions, a moving symbol of grace and grit, soul and power. Our love and respect for Tina grew as we witnessed her bravely reclaim her freedom. From the moment I met Tina, first as a fan, then later blessed to become her friend, she was a special kind of role model… And as those big wheels of time keep on turning, Tina’s voice continues to speak to all of us.”
