The Queen of Rock and Roll, Tina Turner, is known for her fabulous voice and power-house presence. She was the definite queen of the 1980’s with her hit albums and songs, and a staring roll in the Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome movie….but did you know…that she is also a survivor of childhood poverty and domestic abuse?

Once upon a time, she was “managed” by her abuser and husband Ike Turner, who exploited Tina’s powerful and soulful voice. Once she got away from Ike, who was physically, mentally, and financially abusive, in 1976 and never looked back. She became a solo act and the rest is history.

Mattel Corp, makers of Barbie, decided to honor Tina by making a doll in her likeness, in limited edition. The release date was 10/13/2022 and it is already “out of stock!” The doll is beautiful and a fitting tribute to the singer/survivor. #girlpower #DVAM2022 #blogboost
