Tina Turner’s last words to Angela Bassett are shared in a heartbreaking tribute.

In a 1993 biopic about Turner, Bassett, who garnered an Oscar nomination, said, “I shall hold these words close to my heart.” According to Angela Bassett, she has had a little piece of Tina Turner in her spirit ever since 1993.

According to her publicist, Turner, a well-known musician who initially rose to recognition in the 1960s, died on May 24 at the age of 83 in her home in Switzerland.

Bassett played Turner in the 1993 biopic “What’s Love Got to Do With It,” which earned her a nomination for an Academy Award.
