Tina Turner opens up about the ups and downs of her career in new documentary trailer

new trailer for HBO’s Tina Turner documentary, Tina, has just been released detailing the ups and downs of the legendary singer. 

According to a press release, Tina takes an “intimate look at the life and career of musical icon Tina Turner, charting her improbable rise to early fame, her personal and professional struggles throughout her life and her even more improbable resurgence as a global phenomenon in the 1980s.”

The trailer features footage from Turner’s memorable performances, including “Proud Mary,” personal stories about her childhood and her mother, as well as clips of her ex-husband, Ike Turner, with whom she shared a tumultuous marriage for 16 years.   

“I’m a girl from a cotton field that pulled myself above the destruction and the mistakes,” says Turner in the trailer. 

Tina will also offer archival footage and new interviews with the 81-year-old. For her musical contributions, Turner was recently announced alongside Chaka Khan, Dionne Warwick, and Mary J. Blige, as one of 16 superstar acts in the running for induction into the 2021 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Tina was previously inducted in 1991 as half of Ike and Tina Turner, but this is her first time as a solo artist.

Tina debuts Saturday, March 27 at 8 p.m. EST on HBO and will be available to stream on HBO Max.
