The world is mourning the loss of rock and roll legend Tina Turner after her passing on Wednesday at the age of 83.

During a concert in Phoenix on Wednesday, Lizzo revealed she hadn't allowed herself to be sad just yet, and instead honored the late icon by performing an incredible rendition of "Proud Mary."

The "About Damn Time" singer shared with the audience:

"I haven't allowed myself to be sad, I haven't allowed myself to cry about it. And I don't want to right now because I'd much rather celebrate... What an incredible legend."
"Tina Turner is and always will be. As a black girl in a rock band, I would not exist if it were not for the Queen of Rock and Roll."
"And remember this..."

Lizzo then emotionally shouted repeatedly:

"There would be no rock and roll without Tina Turner!"

Turner died on Wednesday at the age of 83 after suffering from a long illness, according to her rep.

She first performed her hit "Proud Mary" in 1970 on TheEd Sullivan Show, which you can see below.

And while the song was written by John Fogerty and first performed and recorded by his band Creedence Clearwater Revival, the song instantly became known as a Tina Turner hit.

What a legend.
