Beyoncé Honors Tina Turner With 'River Deep - Mountain High' Performance During Renaissance World Tour

During the UK leg of her Renaissance World Tour, Beyoncé paid tribute to one of her biggest influences, late music superstar Tina Turner.

Turner died on May 24 at the age of 83 in her Swiss home after a long illness. Beyoncé, as usual, lost little time in paying tribute to the Rock 'N Roll classic via her website.

"My adored queen." I will always love you. "I'm so grateful for your inspiration and all the ways you've paved the way," she wrote shortly before her death.

"You exemplify strength and resilience. You exemplify strength and desire. We are all so grateful to have observed your generosity and great spirit, which will live on forever. Thank you for what you've done."

She even took a minute on Memorial Day during her tour stop in London at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, the first of five nights in the city.

The "Cuff It" singer wore a stunning royal blue mesh-like couture outfit by ROKSANDA while playing the 1966 single "River Deep - Mountain High" with a twist,

singing it more like a ballad than a fast tempo.This should come as no surprise to the BeyHive, as the mother of three has always expressed her appreciation for the "What's Love Got To Do With It" singer.
