Tina Turner will be remembered in a memorial concert following a “small and very private” funeral with just her friends and close family members.
The former personal assistant of the Proud Mary hitmaker revealed that the late legendary singer did not want a “big public funeral.”
Speaking to The Mirror, Eddy Hampton “Armani,” who worked with the Queen of Rock ‘n’ Roll for more than 20 years, said, “She did not want a big public funeral.”
He went on to reveal that fans of Tina can expect some kind of a “memorial concert” for her as there won’t be a public funeral.
“She wanted to be cremated and I expect it to be a small, very private affair. I am sure there will be some kind of memorial concert and tribute later,” she added.
Eddy continued: “It will be for her very close friends in Switzerland, and her manager. It will not be a big family occasion.”
Tina, whose real name was Anna Mae Bullock, passed away “peacefully” at her home following a prolong illness last week.
“Tina Turner, the ‘Queen of Rock ‘n’ Roll’ has died peacefully today at the age of 83 after a long illness in her home in Kusnacht near Zurich, Switzerland,” her representative said while announcing her death.
“With her, the world loses a music legend and a role model,” the statement added.
