EDITORS’ NOTES

Tina Turner isn't just a powerful vocalist. She's also a symbol: for female independence, for survivors of domestic violence, for the notion that women can have lives in art just as long, varied, and heroic as men do. From her commanding '60s performances with Ike Turner to the relaxed but hard-bitten sound of 1984's Private Dancer and “What's Love Got to Do With It,” Turner's music maintained an intensity that simmered under the surface even in her quieter moments—proof that soul didn't have to explode to burn.
