Tina Turner beams in final public appearance before death

Tina Turner told fans to “keep on rocking” during her last public appearance.

The Queen of Rock ‘n’ Roll — who died Wednesday at the age of 83 — was last seen by her fans in a November 2021 video where she showed gratitude for being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

“Hi, everybody, it was really special when I heard that the Hall of Fame was giving me a trophy,” Turner said while seated next to a piano.

“If they’re still giving me awards at 81, I must have done something right. Yeah, this is mine, only I don’t care of you now,” she said with a laugh.
