The similarities between these two fierce, leggy divas are not lost on modern audiences. Both women share an affinity for shimmery ensembles, picture-perfect locks, and the ability to sell out arenas. The pair may have even shared a stage together at the 50th annual Grammy Awards but there is only one Tina Turner. Beyoncé may have learned to emulate her stage presence but Tina Turner was one of the early trailblazers for black female entertainers. 

Interestingly enough, Turner also got into Buddhism back in the 1970s, she found peace in the rituals of chanting and still adheres to the teachings of The Soka Gakkai International, (the largest Buddhist organization) today.

According to Turner, "The experience of singing prayers together allows us to deeply connect on an emotional level, a place of love and respect where worldly differences fade."
