TINA: Book (Holly Knight)

I Am The Warrior (2022)

Tina Turner - I Am The Warrior (Holly Knight) - Book

Throughout the 1980s, singer / songwriter Holly Knight composed anthems that became the soundtrack for millions of people’s lives. She created and crafted empowering odes to independence, liberation, and equality.

Defiant, purposeful, and ultimately triumphant, her work with Tina Turner, Pat Benatar, and Heart, among others, also helped pave the way for the next generation of defining female musical masters including Amy Winehouse, Adele, and Lady Gaga. It was the music and words she wrote. But it was also the visual representations on MTV that helped define Holly’s work for the masses. She was inducted in the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2013, standing side by side with the likes of Steven Tyler, Joe Perry, and Foreigner.

Knight learned of Tina's abuse at the hands of Ike Turner while reading I, Tina, the memoir that became the basis for the biopic What's Love Got To Do With It. And Knight never discussed the abuse she endured at the hands of her own mother with Turner. It was inside of us, but we didn’t talk about it. What we did focus on was positivity and, without saying it, empowerment. Tina Turner has recorded nine of her tunes, including The BestBetter Be Good To Me, and In Your Wildest Dreams and wrote the foreword for this book.
