Tina Turner Celebrated In Her Hometown
By Erica Williams

BROWNSVILLE, Tenn- West Tennessee residents spent two days celebrating Tina Turner, the international superstar who born and raised in Haywood County.
The Delta Heritage Center in Brownsville held the first annual Tina Turner Heritage Days this weekend to pay homage to the singer.
"It’s a big tourism draw because she’s a big superstar", Sonia Outlaw-Clark, Director of the Delta Heritage Center, said.

People from all over the world came out to participate in the events, held Friday and Saturday, including musicians from as close as Brownsville to as far as Norway.
"I went to see Tina Turner myself back in 1988, during her European tour", Knut Roppestad, a Norwegian musician said. "So I was happy to perform here".

And besides bringing more awareness to the county, organizers say the community event helped out in other ways.
"It’s drawing international attention to Haywood County and that means more tax dollars", Outlaw-Clark said.
The Delta Heritage Center houses a year-round exhibit of Tina Turner and other local artists.

    Tina Turner

    Sometimes you've got to let everything go -- purge yourself. If you are unhappy with anything . . . whatever is bringing you down, get rid of it. Because you'll find that when you're free, your true creativity, your true self comes out.

    I never said "Well, I don't have this and I don't have that." I said, I don't have this yet, but I'm going to get it.

    I will never give in to old age until I become old. And I'm not old yet!

    I didn't have anybody, really, no foundation in life, so I had to make my own way. Always, from the start. I had to go out in the world and become strong, to discover my mission in life.
