Ike & Tina Turner Biography (Wikipedia)

Ike & Tina Turner were an American musical duo, active during the 1960s and early 1970s, composed of the husband-and-wife team of Ike Turner and Tina Turner. They performed live as the Ike & Tina Turner Revue, supported by Ike Turner's rhythm and blues (R&B) and soul group, the Kings of Rhythm and backing singers, the Ikettes. The Ike & Tina Turner Revue was regarded as "one of the most potent live acts on the R&B circuit".

The duo's early works, including "A Fool in Love", "It's Gonna Work Out Fine", "I Idolize You" and "River Deep – Mountain High", became high points in the development of soul music. Their later works were noted for wildly interpretive re-arrangements of rock songs such as "I Want to Take You Higher" and "Proud Mary", the latter of which won a Grammy Award in 1971. Their live performances were a musical spectacle in the style of James Brown and the Famous Flames. The duo's professional and personal relationship ended in 1976, and their divorce was finalized in 1978.
