The world-famous singer sent her goodbyes to all fans in her new film. Tina also unveiled how she overcome all the pains in her past to find happiness at the last chapter of her life.

After years of struggling in her painful past, Tina now has a chance to look back all the events that happened and how she has overcome them all. In her new documentary that is named Tina, the legendary singer bids her final farewell to fans all over the world. She asserts that she wants to enter the last chapter of life without the spotlight.

A painful past with remarkable achievements

After all the ups and downs in her life, Tina wants her last chapter in peace.

Born in 1939, Tina Turner has reached her 80s while suffering ill health, including cancer and kidney failure. Though she had a kidney transplant in 2017, the singer reveals that she also has post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) that prevents her from enjoying her life for so long.

“It wasn’t a good life. The good did not balance the bad…It’s a reality. It’s a truth. That’s what you’ve got, so you have to accept it.”

Looking back on her past, Tina was still obsessed with the abuse she suffered from her first husband and the early partner Ike Turner. It took her years to get rid of her past and made a comeback to the music industry.

Her 1984 album Private Dancer with the legend song What’s Love Got to Do With It immediately bagged Grammy Award for Record of the Year. Tina was also the oldest woman to top the Billboard Hot 100 as a solo artist at the age of 44.

She found late happiness with Erwin Bach

In her documentary, Tina Turner first time talks to her present husband Erwin Bach who brought her happiness after all.

At the age of 46, she found her love for a lifetime.

She shares that many people say her life is full of achievements that she should be proud of. But she asks herself:

“When do you stop being proud? I mean, when do you, how do you bow out slowly? Just go away?”

Tina also mentions her mother who suffered domestic a.b.u.s.e as well. Though the singer tried to make her mother feel comfortable for not having a husband to accompany, her efforts didn’t prove successful.

“She didn’t want me, she didn’t want to be around me, even though she wanted my success. But I did for her as if she loved me.”

It’s understandable why a companion like Erwin Bach is so important to Tina Turner. At the peak of her career in 1986, Tina found she was unbelievably lonely.

Tina and Oprah are among the most successful black people in the world's entertainment industry.

Fortunately, she met Erwin Bach, a German record producer during that time. He was 30 and she was 46, but the age barrier couldn’t stop them from loving each other.

It’s not until decades later that Tina and Bach got married together. Their marriage has stood the test of time and illness. Bach always stays beside Tina. He was the one who donated his kidney for her transplant in 2017.

“He was just so different, so laid back, so comfortable, so unpretentious, and that was the beginning of our relationship.”

Tina recalled the moment she met Bach. And time has proved what she felt at the beginning was true.
