Welcome to the Letterman YouTube Channel, home to all your favorite clips from Late Night and Late Show - as well as conversations with the writers, producers and performers who helped make it all happen. The language may strike you as quaint & flowery, the clothing comically lacey & ornate — but that’s how things were back in this colorful and now bygone era.

    She was such a knock out!! Watching her perform was ALWAYS inspiring! No one could move and sing like Tina. This is a sad day knowing she is no longer with us. What a fantastic world class talent.

    We saw her in Oakland in 2001 and it was a simply phenomenal performance. I heard her share on many occasions that people pay their hard earned money to see her and they deserve her best. Not to be corny, but she truly was simply the best. What a woman!

    Tina had a beautiful laugh. She was pure and natural. Rest in peace, queen

    Gosh, she had to be so polite to Letterman. What a lady.

    When you listen to her explain how difficult it could be to get some songs played on different music stations in America - "it was too black for some stations and not black enough for others", even in 1984, and how politely she discussed it, she handled herself so beautifully.

    What an inspiration. I'm so glad I got to experience her music and even see her live 😍

    Farewell beautiful lady. You changed this world for the better, always an inspiration. Rest peacefully, dear Tina. Thanks for everything. 🌹
  • So classy and humble... note, she said Mick Jagger learned with her and the girls (the dancers). She could have simply talk only of herself and we wouldnt mind or notice. But no... she gave credit to her dancers. This is class you dont find anywhere anymore. All these so called celebrities/artists are just "me, myself and i" (no pun intended). You will be greatly missed, Tina❤

    When you first hear of the unexpected passing of an icon, you actually grasp and momentarly stunned then sad and realize how much of a part their music was part of your life. Bye baby, you were so cool and so beautiful.

    What a classy, beautiful, intelligent, sexy, sensual, talented, lovely, and phenomenal woman. R.I.P Tina!
    She had it all, so beautiful, charming, warm, talented and a great sense of humour.
  • James Campbell
    I am so heartbroken 💔 that she has passed. You didn't grow up in the 80s and didn't know who she was. Queen of rock and roll. You will be missed. You were a true queen and thank you for your wonderful music.
