After more than a year on hiatus during the pandemic, Tina - The Tina Turner Musical is set to reopen this Friday.

PBS NewsHour correspondent Karla Murthy recently sat down with the show's writer and members of the cast, including Tony-award winner Adrienne Warren, to talk about the show and Tina Turner's journey to become one of the most celebrated recording artists in history.

Warren talked about what it was like stepping into Tina's shoes, and getting help from the legend herself.

"I think the thing that's so special about Tina is she kind of has this voice that is of the earth, it seems like. She has no top and no bottom to it," Warren said. "That is what I learned was the most important thing about her, she's such a rhythmic singer. And I kind of just try to channel her as much as I can and find the essence of her."
