We received an email from the people working on the album telling us that the release date is now October 2011 and not September 30. The album will be titled Beyond For Children and it will feature prayers and songs from different religions. This time, a group of children was also included in the project, their singing can be heard alongside Tina Turner, Regula Curti and Dechen Shak-Dagsay. When we find more details of this release, we will let you know. In the mean time, you can watch a trailer of the project that we posted some time ago on this blog and an update version of the trailer from beyonsingingcom.
26 years ago today, Tina Turner performed together with Mick Jagger at the Philadelphia concert of the Live Aid charity event organized by Bob Geldof to raise money for the famine in Ethiopia. Tina was invited at the last minute by Mick, and they performed two songs together; State of Shock (originally a duet of Mick Jagger with Michael Jackson) and the Rolling Stones classic It’s Only Rock ‘N’ Roll. There was very little rehearsal time: Tina wrote the lyrics to the song on her arm and Mick ripped off Tina’s skirt by surprise. Below you will find HQ photos from this performance.
