Tina is a Swiss-American songwriter, singer, and actress. Tina has been rocking the world with her music since the 1960s. This film helps us find out who he really is and talks about his accomplishments. The single “A Fool in Love” came out in July 1960 and was an immediate hit, taking 2nd place on the Hot R&B Sides and No. 27 on the Billboard Hot 100. Journalist Kurt Loder describes the song as “the blackest backdrop to have crept onto the white pop charts since Ray Charles ‘What’d I Say’ Bible style the previous summer.”
Another single from the couple, “It’s Gonna Work Out Fine,” joined No. 14 in the Top 100 and No. 2 on the R&B plan in 1961, earning them a Grammy nomination for Best Rock Roll Performance. Unusual singles released between 1960 and 1962 involved the R&B hits “I Idolize You,” “Tra La La La La, and” Poor Fool. “
TINA: What to Expect
After releasing “A Fool in Love,” Ike formed Ike & Tina Turner Revue, which hosted Kings of Rhythm and a girl group called Ikettes which supported Tina. He settled in the background as the band leader. Ike put on a complete rerun through a tight outing schedule across the United States, making 90 consecutive days at venues across the country. During the days of the Chitlin Circuit, Ike & Tina Turner Revue created a reputation as “one of the most angry, duo, and potentially the most dangerous of all R&B ensembles,” with her show befitting James Brown Revue in musical viewing duration. Their lucrative shows can appear before an unregistered public in southern clubs and hotels.
Between 1963 and 1965, the band continued to travel and produced quite successful R&B singles. Tina’s first single to be credited as a solo performer, “Too Many Ties That Bind” / “We Need an Agreement,” was released from the Ike Sonja Records label in 1964. Ike and Tina, “You Can’t-Miss Nothing That You Nevermore Had , “Reached No. 29 at Billboard R & R & B graphics. After their ownership of Sue Records, the duo signed with more than ten labels for the rest of the decade, including Kent, Cenco, Pompeii, A&M, Tangerine, and Mint.
First Black Rock & Roll
In 1964, they made a contract with Loma Records, a subsidiary of Warner Bros. Records, which was run by Bob Krasnow. Krasnow changed their manager as soon as they left Sue Records. On the Warner Bros. label, they produced their first charting record with Live! Ike & Tina Turner’s show, peaked at No. 1.
This film seems so inspiring as he dreams of becoming the “First Black Rock & Roll”. He dreamed of surfing the waves of racism, And he succeeded. As shown in the trailer, he lives a violent life; He chose to compose a song about it rather than cry about it.
Shit, that’s how TINA works.
Ike & Tina
The two of them make an amazing duo. However, their relationship ran aground because Ike was addicted to cocaine. In 1976, they made headlines at New York’s Waldorf Astoria and rented a tube deal with CBS-TV. Ike plans to submit United Artists Records for a five-year contract with Cream Records for $ 150,000 per year. The deal was confirmed on July 5. On July 1, Ike and Tina traveled from Los Angeles to Dallas, where the show was performed at the Dallas Statler Hilton.
They get into a big argument on the way to the hotel. Shortly after landing at the hotel, Tina escapes from Ike and then sneaks into a friend’s house. She filed for divorce on 27 July, and finalized on 29 March 1978. Following their divorce, United Artists released two more studio albums which are credited to the duo, Delilah’s Power (1977) and Airwaves (1978).
The film says after her divorce, she was left with nothing. Her money’s gone, her house’s gone, But her name is on her. This is a very inspiring story about a woman who rose from her ashes and now inspires many women around the world.

The film then takes us back to how she came out light, pinned with Ike Turner Kings of Rhythm in 1957, when she was a quiet, self-doubting 17-year-old named Annie Mae Bullock. She doesn’t think she’s attractive, and in many photos, she looks pretty serious, and for good reason. His parents disowned him, leaving a hole in his soul that took years to heal.
The story of his resurrection with the great rock ‘n’ roll legend that is also, of course, hidden horror, and what Dan Lindsay and TJ Martin, the “Tina” director, return to him is a multitude of archival footage – clips of incredible accomplishments, home films and photos which allowed us to touch on what life was like with Ike the beast Svengali – which they weaved into an unforgettable audiovisual photo montage.
