Tina Turner to Become a Swiss Citizen

R & B Diva…Tina Turner, has renounced  her American citizenship to become Swiss.

The “Soul Queen,”  who has sold 200 million records,  has lived in the Zurich suburb of Kuesnacht since the mid-1990s with her longtime partner, German music manager Erwin Bach. 

The decision to grant her citizenship required formal approval from state and federal authorities . 

According to sources…the local Zuerichsee-Zeitung newspaper said on its website today that the local council announced its decision to grant the 73-year-old citizenship.

Following the announcement the 73-year-old  told a local German newspaper: ‘I’m very happy in Switzerland and I feel at home here. … I cannot imagine a better place to live.’
