Remember When Tina Turner Performed at the Gorge?
What a time to be alive during the same time as Tina Turner! May she rest in peace.
A legend on and off the stage. She even graced us with her performance at the Gorge Amphitheater in George Washington.
June 12th, 1993, and May 25th, 1997
Making it about 26 years since her last performance at the Gorge Amphitheater.
Being the "Queen of Rock and Roll," she first shot to fame back in 1960. Born on November 26th, 1939. Since has received over 20 awards for singing and acting.
While performing at the Gorge Amphitheater, she sang songs like:
Addicted To Love
River Deep, Moutain High
Plus many other amazing hits by the one and only Tina Turner.
Tina Turner, a woman who knew how to dominate, sing and cherish those around her. To live a life she led, must have taken grit, drive and determination, and she did it! She lived it!
Singing along to "What's love got to do, got to do with it... What's love but a secondhand emotion..." in the back seat of the car with my mom belting the lyrics. Not knowing back then what any of the words could have meant, nor realizing how impactful the moments like that were. Looking back now, Tina Tuner helped glue relationships together through song.
Rest in Paradise sweet Soul. We say goodbye to you as a person but hold all your beautiful work close to our hearts. Thank you for the memories and thank you for stopping by the Gorge Amphitheater here in Washington.
