American singer/ songwriter and actress, Beyoncé has paid tribute to her musical inspiration Tina Turner who died on Wednesday after a long illness in her home in Küsnacht near Zurich, Switzerland.

“My beloved queen, I love you endlessly, I’m so grateful for your inspiration, and all the ways you have paved the way.
“You are strength and resilience, you are the epitome of power and passion. We are all so fortunate to have witnessed your kindness and beautiful spirit that will forever remain. Thank you for all you have done.”

Beyonce‘s message featured a photo of the two holding hands and bowing at the 2008 Grammy Awards, where they performed Turner’s hit “Proud Mary” together.
Beyoncé’s mother posted a video of her daughter meeting up with her musical inspiration Turner to rehearse for that Grammys performance.
“I remember this day like it was yesterday. It was the day that Beyoncé was to rehearse with Tina Turner for the Grammys.
“We were both so excited and when she arrived and we were told that she was in the other (room) we all witnessed Beyoncé, turning into a five-year-old actually skipping across the floor to embrace her.
“It was so powerful…I felt like a little kid,” Beyoncé said of the rehearsal with Turner for the Grammys at the time, during an interview on “The Oprah Winfrey Show.” “Basically I told her how much she means to me and this is literally a dream for me.”

“I was the biggest fan and had my own story of when I met Tina in 1980. Beyonce always talked about the two Tinas that she loved and admired.” She wrote.
“Every now and then when I think of inspiration, I think of the two Tinas in my iife: that’s my mother Tina, and of course the amazing Tina Turner,” Beyoncé said. “I’ll never forget the first time I saw you perform. I never in my life saw a woman so powerful, so fearless, so fabulous. And those legs!”
