The full trailer for the upcoming HBO documentary Tina chronicling the life and career of Tina Turner is now available.

Embedded below, the full trailer is packed with classic performance footage and images of Turner in the varying stages of her incredible career. The trailer touches on Turner’s abusive marriage with ex-husband, Ike Turner, as well as how practicing Buddism helped change her life.

The doc features interviews with not only its subject but with Oprah Winfrey, Turner’s husband Erwin Bach, journalist Kurt Loder and Angela Bassett, who played Turner in the 1993 biopic What’s Love Got to Do With It. 

Tina premieres on HBO and HBO Max on March 27.

Turner was recently announced as a nominee for the 2021 class of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for her solo work. Turner was previously inducted into the Rock Hall in 1991 with Ike Turner.

Fans can vote for Turner as part of the Rock Hall’s Fan Vote, which runs through April 30 at RockHall.com. Fans are allowed to vote once per day during the Fan Vote period. Visitors of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Museum in Cleveland will also have the opportunity to vote in person. The “Fans’ Ballot” will be comprised of the top five artists from the fan vote and will be counted among the other ballots filled out by various artists, historians, and music industry professionals.

The 2021 inductees will be announced in May, while the induction ceremony is currently slated to take place on October 30 at the Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse arena in Cleveland. The Rock Hall is planning on having fans in attendance.
