Tina Turner was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame by actress Angela Bassett. Several artists performed at the event as a tribute to Turner and her musical legacy. Turner is one of three women to be inducted twice – the other two are Stevie Nicks and Carole King. She was previously inducted in 1991 as the other half of Ike & Tina Turner.

“Like Tina, I was a little Black girl who had dreams far beyond what the world expected of me,” Bassett said in her speech. Although Turner wasn’t in Cleveland to personally accept the award, she recorded a video for her acceptance speech from her home in Switzerland.

“If they are still giving me awards at 81,” she said, “I must be doing something right.”

H.E.R. and Keith Urban performed “It’s Only Love”, country artist Mickey Guyon played “What’s Love Got To Do With It”, and Christina Aguilera sang a powerful version of “River Deep, Mountain High”. Bryan Adams was originally slated to perform “It’s Only Love”, but he had to pull out after testing positive for Covid-19.

This year’s Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will air on November 20 on HBO.

Meanwhile, a new documentary about Turner titled “Tina” aired earlier this year.
