I admire Tina Turner.

Her indomitable will to survive, and survive she has. She thrived, excelled, and overcame so much.

Here are two live versions of one of my favourites, “River Deep, Mountain High”:  Ike & Tina Turner – “River Deep, Mountain High” 1971 (including intro) and Tina Turner – “River Deep, Mountain High”, recorded live at Hippodrom, Sopot, Poland on August 15th 2000..

Enjoy.
