Dear Tina...Your songs have been a faithful presence through all my life, in its highs and lows. Since I was 13 or 14 I discover not only your music, but also your presence, your personality, your power on stage. And your wonderful cover versions made me discover a lot of great artists, such as The Who, The Stones, Bob Seger and a lot lot more...you made me learn and love music and musicianship, talent and commitment that I don't always find in todays music. So thank you thank you thank you...have a nice birthday and keep on enjoying your deserved rest with your husband. Best best wishes Tina :-)

Dear Tina,

first of all I want to wish you the happiest birthday, much strength and health! I am so happy about being able to sending you birthday wishes so personally.
I hope, you have a beautiful day and a good start into a great new year of life.

Maybe you aren´t really aware of your impact on peoples´lifes but maybe I can make that a bit clearer by telling my personal story.

My name is Romy, I was born in 1971 and when I was a little girl (thirteen years old) I heard your voice on the radio for the very first time in my young life. To be honest I couldn´t believe what I just heard! That music was it for me. Many of my friends back then listened to Depeche Mode, Queen, AHA, etc. But for me it was and still is only TINA!
It wasn´t easy to buy vinyls, cassettes or posters because I was born in the former GDR. Somehow I managed to have a collection of various things I connected with you.
After the fall of the German wall I was finally able to attend the first Tina Turner concert in Cologne in 1990. It was huge and absolutely stunning! Just the thought of seeing you there live was breathtaking!
My friend and I had tickets at the front row and now in 2019 I could still explode because I was/am so happy about it!
The concert was like a dream for me. I couldn´t believe it and I was like in trance.
My passion for your music has not only affected my life but also my daughter´s. Her name is Maria, she is 21 years old and five years ago, when you turned 75, we visited a fan party in Berlin for the first time. It was amazing and now we are in 2019, having booked flights and a hotel room to celebrate your birthday in Cologne with other fans. Cologne, where it all started.
This year you are turning 80 and again we want to wish you a very happy and special day.

My daughter, my husband and I visited the Tina Turner musical in Hamburg some weeks ago. It was so amazing and catching to see your life story again. But no matter what happened, you got up and moved on. I really look up to you and your strength!

Thank you for being such a strong woman and a role model!

Yours sincerely,

Maria and Romy

Hello Tina,
I wish you the best and happiest birthday.
I want you know that your concert in Madison Square Garden in 2009 was the best live music concert I ever attended in my life. The energy was amazing and you are the true rock star. I like to come back to the memory and energy of that concert, it just makes me feel better. Tom Cruise attended this concert, and you greeted him from stage.
I remember you as a young girl back in Poland where I was born and how I liked your hair and your legs and your voice and your charisma. I still watch and listen to „Tonight” with David Bowie from live concert. You were a always a huge star in Poland. Now I live in New York and I saw you live. Most exciting. Please know you are loved by so, so many people around the world. Thank you for the inspiration, music, sexiness and great energy. Love you and say hello to your husband. Have a fabulous day. Be healthy and happy. Xo. Anna Rymer

Dearest Tina, Mrs. Bach,

Congratulations with your birthday to you and Erwin. I am sending my best wishes of happiness from Cyprus, ‘the island of love’, Aphrodite’s birthplace as the myth has it.

Just want to say that you’ve been with me for the most part of my life. With your songs you uplifted me and made me happy when I had fun and when I had some quiet and reflexive moments as well. I even danced to your songs with my nephew when he was a baby, and he would stop crying. I almost sang ‘Two People’ at my friends’ wedding. Your unstoppable energy, hard work and uniqueness have always been stunning and encouraging. Thank you for having tirelessly been there for me and for many many more!

Enjoy your special day! XX

Dear Anna Mae,

First of all, all participants and me are
glad of having this opportunity to send you
our best wishes and to share our personal
feelings regarding you and your archievements.
We also hope that you are well and that you will
recover from your health problems.

As a living legend, you have shown the world
the meaning of strength, persistence, going through failures and setbacks, of overcoming them and gaining self- confidence.

It seems like, as soon as I was concious as a little child, there was always this powerful voice from the radio
so familiar, so recognizable, everybody knew, who was singing - though I was not yet able spelling your stage Name correctly, calling you "Tinatana",

I remember when the radio station RSG used "Golden Eye" as a pun for an easter prize game, back in spring 1996 and four year old me found herself totally confused of you allegedly singing about a golden egg.

it was pure enjoyment hearing your musical work - and later understanding it as a teen. You gave me consolation in sad times of heartaches and while I was going through bullying at school. I still have to work on my self esteem, since I never had a chance to build it up properly. But I am doing my best to get there
There's is nothing more precious than being in tune with oneself - and I do look to you.

Thank you for sharing your story and for sharing your precious musical gift with the world. You have proven that age is only a number and that as long as somebody stands for theirself, their abilities and their beliefs they can move rocks.

Thank you for these priceless lessons.

You are more than a role model.
Our admiration is yours

Thank you

I was born in 1967 and listened to your music as I grew up. In the 80’s you helped save my life. I learned about your life and challenges. I knew if you could be strong and live a happy life, so could I. You are a true gem we are honored to witness your talent. God bless you! Happy 80th!!

Dear Tina, happy birthday! May the day become as good as you are on stage.

I haven't called me a fan of you, since for one and a half year ago. But I have always known you from a little age. I remember when I was about seven years old , when we practiced on We Are The World at school, that I knew who you, to the teachers surprise.

Therefore, I believe that you were destined to mean a lot in my life. It was after I saw a live video of you perorming Proud Mary my fandom began. At the time I were struggling with a bad eating disorder. When I learned more about you I became fascinated and humbled by your strenght and courage. And though our stories aren't very similar I found strenght to battling my eating disorder through you. I thought that if you could do it, so could I. And for that I would like to thank you very much. Without you I wouldn't have been as healthy as I am today.

Best Wishes from Alexander

I will never forget seeing you in Manchester 31st March 2009. It was the greatest concert and you have helped me so much with your music and your strong and positive attitude to life. I'll never forget hearing "when the heartache is over" for the first time when I was going through difficulty. The song is my soundtrack to life and made me one of your greatest fans. Thank you, Tina, your a rarity in this life and I'm so glad to have been in your lifetime, listened to your music, read your books and seen you perform live. Happy birthday Tina! Love, Craig
