On perhaps the darkest day of Tina Turner’s life and career, her St. Louis Walk of Fame star may be shining its brightest.

Her Delmar Loop star is now surrounded by flowers, with several fans paying their respects.

“I grew up on her music,” LaTonya Walker said on Wednesday. “It’s really sad that she’s gone.”

Turner spent many of the early years of her life in St. Louis, graduating from Sumner High School in 1958. She would later work as a nurse’s aide at Barnes Jewish Hospital.
