In her message, Bassett asked individuals to remember their “inner Tina.” So today, while all grieve the loss of this iconic voice and presence, she gave all more than one could have ever asked for. She gave her entire being. Tina Turner, on the other hand, is a gift that will always be ‘simply the finest.’ Angels, sing thee to thy rest, Queen.
