Lionel Richie recalls touring with Tina Turner


Lionel Richie recently recalled touring with the legendary Tina Turner. Lionel said about Tina: "I think of determination, strength and an incredible work ethic. There are performers, there are singers and there are entertainers. Tina is all three."

A recent Vogue article paid respects to Tina, now retired. Lionel talked about Tina being the opening act of his 1984 world tour. He said. "I remember her walking into the rehearsal -- she was very quiet, almost shy, with this amazing smile and personality. Then the music started and she turned into Tina Turner! To the point where I couldn't perform -- I would just sit and watch what she was doing... Being on stage with her was the most incredible feeling of my entire life. There was no dull moment, it was all fire."
