Tina Turner 1939 – 2023

I have seen Tina Turner live in concert twice, back in the nineties, and her musical energy was absolutely impressive. Older generations’ music legends are slowly leaving this world. But their music remains.

That was my first thought when I heard the news last night, that the legendary singer and the ‘Queen of Rock’n’Roll’ has passed away. Immediately I had to play one of my favorite songs of hers On Silent Wings. The song has helped me through some difficult times and I’ve kept coming back to it when in need.

This is just my personal goodbye to this wonderful lady and artist, who impacted lives of millions of music fans. As she sings in the song:

You never see it coming

But you know it has to end

On Silent Wings, silent wings …
