The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame is a museum in Cleveland, celebrating the most important musicians and producers. Artists become eligible for induction 25 years after the release of their first record. In 1989, Tina honored Phil Spector with a speech at the ceremony of his induction. Two years later in 1991, Phil Spector inducted Ike & Tina Turner on their behalf, because Ike was in prison and Tina didn’t want to participate. The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame home video from 2011 includes the most memorable moments of the ceremony with Tina performing River Deep, Mountain High and together on stage with Mick Jagger and other artists. In 2020, Tina was nominated as a solo artist for the 2021 induction.

Ike and Tina Turner were such a presence onstage that even their own albums don’t do them justice. The explosive duo made such enduring hits as „River Deep, Mountain High,“ „Proud Mary“ and „Nutbush City Limits.“
