Heartbreak, adversity and ultimately triumph: Turner's story has it all. The iconic singer, born Anna Mae Bullock in Tennessee, picked cotton as a child and suffered years of abuse under husband Ike Turner before they divorced in the 1970s. However, she had the comeback of a lifetime with thePrivate Dancer album and the hit "What's Love Got to Do With It" — becoming one of the top-selling recording artists in history. Turner finally found her own happy ending when she married Erwin Bach this year after nearly three decades of dating.
