Photos: Sheryl Rouse Brought Tina Turner (And The Crowd) Alive At Fourth Street Live Tribute Show

Fans of Tina Turner braved the rain on Sunday to head to Fourth Street Live! for the Tina Turner Tribute: Rolling On Fourth Street Live! show featuring Sheryl Rouse and the Unlimited Show Band.

The tribute show featured many of the “Queen of Rock ‘n’ Roll”’s most iconic songs and also walked the audience through many facets of her life and career.

The show began with performers acting out the first time Turner, then known as Anna Mae Bullock, stepped on stage to perform with Ike Turner. The performance then journeyed through Turner’s life as she performed with Ike Turner and eventually made it big as a solo artist.
