Tina Turner To Be Honored at the Kennedy Center

Tina Turner picTina Turner, the long-reigning queen of rock and roll, has eight Grammy Awards, sold millions of albums and she's already in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. She's also among this year's honorees to be celebrated at the Kennedy Center.

Other performers honored for career achievement in the arts are: actor-director Robert Redford, singer Tony Bennett, actress Julie Harris, and dancer Suzanne Farrell. Caroline Kennedy is the host.

At the gala celebration, which will be shown on TV tomorrow night, Queen Latifah sang "What's Love Got to Do With It" in honor of Tina, while Melissa Etheridge sang "River Deep, Mountain High" and Beyonce Knowles performed "Proud Mary."

Oprah Winfrey called herself "Tina's biggest known groupie" and spoke of seeing Tina perform live, advising the audience at the Kennedy, "Add that to the list of things you do before you die."

Of the honor, Tina said, "...I'm proud of what I've done. I'm proud of what I became the person that I became and it was hard work. There was a lot of suffering, but I don't suffer now. I'm happy and I'm always happy. I feel good all the time and, yeah, I'm proud of myself."
