The legendary singer Tina Turner has just ticked over 80 fabulous years on this earth, and to mark the milestone, the Proud Mary singer decided to share a positive video with her fans.
Following her recent battle with cancer and a kidney transplant, Tina posted a reflective video talking about her second chance at life.
“It’s like having a second chance at life," she said.
“I’m 80. What do I think? How did I think I would be at 80? Not like this."
“I look great. I feel good. I have gone through some very serious sicknesses that I am overcoming. It’s like having a second chance at life.
“I am happy to be an 80-year-old.”
Tina had a mild stroke after marrying German music executive Erwin Bach in 2013, and had to learn how to walk again.
Three years later, she was diagnosed with kidney failure and intestinal cancer. Doctors removed part of her intestine, but her kidney issues worsened.
However, Erwin gave her one of his own kidneys, and Tina had a successful transplant operation in April 2017.
