No, this video shows Beyoncé singing at a Tina Turner tribute event
A video has been viewed and shared millions of times in multiple posts on Facebook and Twitter alongside a claim that it shows American singer Tina Turner’s daughter “singing her mother’s song“. The claim is false; the video shows Beyoncé singing at a Tina Turner tribute event singing one of Turner’s songs.
The video was published here on Facebook on July 3, 2018. The caption states: “Tina Turner daughter singing her mother’s song.”
Tina Turner is an American singer who has won eight Grammy Awards.
The four minute 22 second-clip, which features a rendition of Turner’s song Proud Mary, has been shared more than 1.4 million times.

The video has also been viewed almost three million times in this Facebook post with a similar claim in Portuguese.
The claim is false; the video shows a performance by American singer Beyoncé, who is not biologically related to Tina Turner.
A reverse image search on Google for a screenshot of the video found this longer version uploaded of the performance in 2013 to the YouTube channel of the Kennedy Center Honors, an annual event that celebrates performers who have had a “profound artistic impact”.
Tina Turner was recognised by the Honors in 2005.
A host can be heard making an introduction at the beginning of the video: “Ladies and gentlemen, Beyoncé."
The text at the bottom left of the video states: “Beyoncé. Proud Mary, Tina Turner Tribute, live at the 2005 Kennedy Center Honors”.
Proud Mary is a song by the band Creedence Clearwater Revival. Tina Turner released a version of it in 1971.
