Tina Turner has died at age 83. She teamed with husband Ike Turner for a dynamic run of hit records and live shows and survived her horrifying marriage to triumph in middle age with the chart-topping “What’s Love Got to Do With It." She was also known for such songs as “Proud Mary,” “River Deep, Mountain High” and “We Don’t Need Another Hero.” Her trademarks were her growling contralto, her bold smile and strong cheekbones, her palette of wigs and her muscular, quick-stepping legs. Turner's manager says she died Wednesday after a long illness in her home in Küsnacht near Zurich.

Fans have flocked to the home of Tina Turner, who died on Wednesday at the age of 83, to lay flowers and candles in memory of the legendary singer, while a host of public figures – from Mick Jagger to Barack Obama – have been paying tribute on social media.
