Ruby Turner (born 22 June 1958) is a Jamaican R&B and soul singer, songwriter and actress. Born in Montego Bay, Jamaica, she moved at the age of nine with her family to Handsworth, Birmingham, England.

Between 1986 and 1995, eight of her singles appeared in the UK Singles Chart with "I'd Rather Go Blind" being the most successful reaching no. 24 in 1987. Turner performed at the Birmingham Heart Beat 86 concert, which featured George Harrison; and also sang on BBC Television's Jools Holland's Hootenanny, from 2007 to 2014 inclusive. She has also appeared as an actress on stage, film and television.
