Legendary singer Tina Turner died at the age of 83, her team confirmed on May 24.

"It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Tina Turner," their statement, posted to her social media pages, read. "With her music and her boundless passion for life, she enchanted millions of fans around the world and inspired the stars of tomorrow. Today we say goodbye to a dear friend who leaves us all her greatest work: her music. All our heartfelt compassion goes out to her family. Tina, we will miss you dearly."

Tina's death comes five months after the passing of her and Ike Turner's son Ronnie.

Ronnie died on Dec. 8 from complications of metastatic colon carcinoma, according to the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner's office. He was 62.

In the wake of his death, Tina remembered her son in a heart-wrenching tribute, writing in a Dec. 9 Instagram post, "Ronnie, you left the world far too early. In sorrow I close my eyes and think of you, my beloved son."

Born Anna Mae Bullock on November 26, 1939, Tina grew up in the rural town of Nutbush, Tennessee. She spent much of her childhood singing in the church choir, though her home life was strained due to her father's alleged abusive behavior toward her mother. When Tina was 11, her mom left the family and relocated to St. Louis, leading the young girl and her two older sisters to be raised by their maternal grandparents and other relatives.
