Lots of rumors flying around today about Tina possibly singing back-up on the song ‘Carry On’ by JJ McCabe, with semi-confirmations and a ball of confusion. But at the end of the day, the most likely scenario is that it is a hoax.
The story started when music blog ‘Rock NYC’ wrote this about the song:
“She is huge, about as big as you can get and I would like to give you another clue as to who it is but I can’t tell you in public. Plus, she is working on a new album and that would be a big story if it was l known. I am the worst at keeping secrets and I wish I could give a hint but she is so well known it might give it away.”
Rumors were further fed by questionable confirmations in private e-mails from ‘people in the know’. However, give a second listen to the song: however much we want it, it’s not Tina…!

Last night, Tina Turner appeared on ‘Oprah’s Next Chapter’, her first televised interview since her retirement from the concert stage in 2009. The program focused mainly on her life after hanging up her dancing shoes: the gaining of Swiss citizenship , her Vogue cover and of course her recent marriage to long-time boyfriend Erwin Bach. In a rare public appearance, the newlywed Bach also sat down together with his wife to reflect on their 25 year relationship. Oprah Winfrey not only asked Tina about recent events, but also about Tina’s unhappy first marriage to Ike Turner. The rock star also looked back on her last ‘farewell’ tour in 2009. The question on everybody’s lips: will there be a return to the spotlights? While Tina didn’t give a definite ‘no’, it seems more unlikely than ever, with Tina claiming that during her last world tour she was often ‘tired of singing and dancing’.
