It was a gold single that spent 3 weeks at #1 for TINA TURNER and today she celebrates another candle on her birthday cake. Although she had many chart hits with Ike, she didn't hit #1 till What's Love.... from her solo album of 1984, Private Dancer.

And earlier this year, Tina married her partner of 27 years, Erwin Bach, and plans to continue to reside in Switzerland.
