Black Women for Black Music Month! Tina Turner

, born Anna Mae Bullock, is the epitome of what it is to be an entertainer. Many of today’ss great performing acts draw their inspirations from this daring and passionate diva. She is one of the world’s most popular entertainers and has been called the most successful female rock artist, not to mention being named “One of the Greatest Singers of All Time” by Rolling Stone.

Turner’s energetic stage presence, powerful vocals, vivacious personality and mass appeal is matched by none. She is easily a revolutionary of music, and we would not have the many different sounds, artists and music expressions that we have today if there was never a Tina Tuner.

Looking for some of Tina’s moves, sounds and expressions in the modern-day music scene? Just look over to everyone’s favorite Pop/R&B princess Beyoncé. Aside from Tina’s triumphant music career, she is considered a beacon of great fashion. She’s the perfect Black woman for VIBE Vixen to honor first in for Black Music Month! -Erica Vain
