Tina Turner, the yowling powerhouse who helped pioneer a high-octane brand of R&B as half of the incendiary Ike & Tina Turner duo and belted out soul-rock gems such as “Proud Mary,” “River Deep, Mountain High” and “What’s Love Got to Do With It,” has died at 83.

Turner’s death was announced by her manager, who said she died Tuesday after a long illness in her home in Kusnacht near Zurich, Switzerland, according to the Associated Press. Turner became a Swiss citizen a decade ago.
