Beyoncé also posted a picture of her and Turner performing together back at the 2008 Grammy Awards. Footage from rehearsals for the performance showcases Beyoncé running up to Turner and giving her a big hug. In the video, Beyonce explains “When I was a kid and I saw her tapes, I wanted to be like her. This is literally a dream to me because she’s the ultimate. To actually be on the stage with her is crazy.” 

It seems that Beyoncé has always been a huge fan of Turner. In 2005, the “Halo” singer praised Turner while she was being honored by former-President George W. Bush. At the time, Beyoncé said, “I’ll never forget the first time I saw you perform. I never in my life saw a woman so powerful, so fearless, so fabulous — and those legs!”

Beyoncé wasn’t the only iconic singer to honor Tina Turner‘s legacy online. Mariah Carey recently made a heartfelt Instagram post that read,  “The words legendary, iconic, diva, and superstar are often overused and yet Tina Turner embodies them all and so many more – an incredible performer, musician and trailblazer. To me, she will always be a survivor and an inspiration to women everywhere. Her music will continue to inspire generations to come. Rest in Peace, Queen ❤️.”

On May 24, a source close to Turner recently announced her death, stating, “Tina Turner, the ‘Queen of Rock ’n’ Roll,’ has died peacefully today at the age of 83 after a long illness in her home in Kusnacht near Zurich, Switzerland. With her, the world loses a music legend and a role model.”
