Tina Turner is known across the globe for her iconic voice, highly energised dance routines and her famous hair.
As the superstar enters her ninth decade, she is preparing to say an emotional goodbye to fans across the world who have supported her since her meteoric rise to fame.
Tina, now 81, is set to tell her life story, with no story left untold in a raw documentary focusing on the Nutbush, Tennessee girl behind some of the biggest songs to ever be released.
Born Anna Mae Bullock, Tina has lived a life that saw her become a victim of domestic abuse, before finding peace after renouncing her American citizenship.
In her forthcoming documentary, the Private Dancer singer says: "It wasn't a good life, the good did not balance the bad.
"I had an abusive life, there's no other way to tell the story, it's a reality, it's the truth, that's what you've got, so you have to accept it."
She goes on to add: "Some people say the life that I lived and the performances that I gave, the appreciation, is blasting with the people. And yeah, I should be proud of that. I am.

"But when do you stop being proud? I mean, when do you, how do you bow out slowly? Just go away?"
Tina currently resides in Zurich, Switzerland, with her second husband – the man with who she finally found love, Erwin Bach.
During the documentary, the couple prepares for a trip to New York to attend the Broadway premiere of the production, The Tina Turner Story.
In a piece to camera, Erwin, 65, reveals: "She said, 'I'm going to America to say goodbye to my American fans and I'll wrap it up'.
"And I think this documentary and the play, this is it – it's a closure."
Tina has previously remained coy when detailing her private life on camera but her documentary will see her tell her entire story.
