Tina Turner — “With a Little Help From My Friends” (Beatles cover)
A ridiculously good Beatles cover, I might add.
“I will never give in to old age until I become old. And I`m not old yet. Determination, perseverance, patience…I did it … I really did it!” - Tina Turner
BLACK HISTORY FACT: 24 years ago today (February 22nd), Tina Turner won a Grammy for Best Female Rock Vocal Performance, her fourth consecutive win in that category, at age 49. Today, determination, perseverance, and patience are the watchwords—keep on rocking!
This would never happen in today’s music industry.
The popularity Tina enjoyed would not happen for a female artist her age and her color today.
The music industry has become even more ageist and colorist in just the past 10 years.
