Before her death, Tina Turner wrote to the fans one last time. In the post she praised her musical, the previous post was more serious in tone.
Tina Turner died on Wednesday in her adopted country of Switzerland. Four weeks before her death, she personally addressed her 1.1 million followers on Instagram. She captioned a clip, filming in London’s West End to mark the fifth anniversary of her musical ‘Tina – The Tina Turner Musical’: “Sending so much love to @tinathemusical. Proud and excited for our wonderful show me that we are celebrating our fifth year in the West End – may it continue!”
Tina Turner: Serious tones on the occasion of World Kidney Day
In the previous post, which she published on Instagram ten weeks before her death on the occasion of World Kidney Day, she struck a much more serious tone. “Today is World Kidney Day. Why is it important? Because kidneys fail without pain. And that’s why I’m telling you today: show your kidneys love! They deserve it,” she began with an appeal.

She then got personal: “My kidneys are a victim of not realizing that my high blood pressure should have been treated with conventional medicine. I have put myself in grave danger by refusing to face reality, that I need daily, lifelong drug treatment. For far too long I believed my body was an untouchable and indestructible bastion,” revealed the US superstar.
Despite her own fate, she apparently wanted to do good and so she continued: “I am therefore very happy to be able to support a new international campaign for kidney health.” Details and the full history of her illness can be found.
