Quote of the Day
Above, is a great quote from Tina Turner. After divorcing her husband Ike, for severe abuse, on this day in 1978, Tina went on to have greater success, with What's Love Got to Do With It, and other songs, and some acting roles, including Mel Gibson's, Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome. I admire her for leaving her abusive situation.
Tina has won 8 Grammys, sold more concert tickets than any solo artist, and sold over 200 million album and singles copies. She has been called one of the most successful female rock artists of all time, and one of the greatest singers of all time.
