Beyoncé continues to pay homage to one of the biggest influences in her music career, the late “Queen of Rock’ n’ Roll,” Tina Turner.
Before the former Destiny’s Child group member stepped into the spotlight, the Pop culture icon, among other young souls, was raised to the sound of the deceased songstress’s powerful vocals.
The 83-year-old has inspired several female talents in the music industry. However, her decades-long reign ended on May 24. Queen Bey performed one of the legend’s biggest hits on her tour in honor of her legacy.
Beyoncé Serenades Her BeyHive With A Beautiful Rendition of Tina Turner’s Famous Song In Epic Tribute
Days after the “I, Tina” author took her final breath, the Texas beauty paid tribute to the late icon during her Renaissance World tour stop in Tottenham, London. Instead of giving an emotional eulogy, the 41-year-old dazzled her audience with a cover of Turner’s “River Deep — Mountain High” song.
The late songstress’s 1966 hit track was released during her time as a musical duo with her ex-husband Ike Turner. Unlike the original song, Beyoncé performed the powerful melody at a slower pace.
As seen in a video shared by one of the “Beautiful Liar” musician’s fan pages on Twitter, the 16-time AMA winner stood confidently in front of the sold-out crowd at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Like her previous concerts, the entertainer did not disappoint in the fashion department.
Paying her respects to the “We Don’t Need Another Hero” artist, the mother-of-three ditched her usual risqué ensembles for a more innocent look. The Parkwood Entertainment founder donned an electric blue jumpsuit with full-body coverage, including the honey blonde’s fingers and toes.
The gorgeous ensemble featured an impressive ruffle detailing that bulged at the waist into a sheer train. Beyoncé completed her beautiful ensemble with a statement silver necklace, earrings, and complimentary heels.
The “Crazy In Love” singer’s epic rendition of Turner’s song came at the heels of her last tribute to the Queen of Rock’ n’ Roll. The Texas sensation paid homage to the 83-year-old at her tour stop in Paris.
During her show, the showstopper implored fans to “scream” so the late legend could feel their love. Raving about the Tennessee native’s influence, the 32-time BET Award winner stated that she could not have achieved her Queen Bey status without the “Proud Mary” artist.

“If you’re a fan of mine, you’re a fan of Tina Turner. Cause I wouldn’t be on this stage without Tina Turner,” the multi-hyphenate star confessed, adding that she was grateful to have been a part of the Hollywood Walk of Fame honoree’s life.
“I feel so blessed that I was alive to witness her brilliance. I also feel very blessed to be here to perform again,” the Knowles-Rowland Center for Youth co-founder concluded.

Following the announcement of the “What’s Love Got to Do with It” songstress’s death, the Pop icon penned an emotional farewell message to Turner. Taking to her eponymous website, the mother-of-three shared a stunning picture from her unforgettable duet with the late entertainer.
The Texas beauty and the “Happiness Becomes You” author performed together in 2008 at the Grammy Awards ceremony. The powerful vocalists rocked matching silver ensembles in the image, with Beyoncé flaunting her model-worthy legs in a bedazzled mini dress.
On the other hand, the first black artist and first female to grace the cover of “Rolling Stone” opted for a form-fitting bustier top and matching capri pants. Additionally, the performers accentuated their similarities with their matching honey-brown hair.
The dynamic duo’s Grammys show marked a historic moment for the pair. Queen Bey performed with her idol, while Turner returned to the stage for the first time in more than seven years. Recalling this sentimental occasion, the entertainer emphasized her eternal adoration for the 83-year-old.
“My beloved queen. I love you endlessly. I’m so grateful for your inspiration and all the ways you have paved the way,” the Oscar nominee penned. “You are strength and resilience. You are the epitome of power and passion.”
Beyoncé concluded her touching tribute, writing, “We are all so fortunate to have witnessed your kindness and beautiful spirit that will forever remain. Thank you for all you have done.”
