“Spirituality comes from a place inside of you. I don’t know where it is, I wish I would. You have to use your imagination. You have to make a connection, to become one to one with the body and the mind.”
(Tina Turner 2012)

Children Beyond is the follow-up to the 2009 album Beyond. This album constituted a remarkable shift in Tina Turner’s career, as it was her first involvement in a spiritual project. Beyond was a big success, reaching a top 10 position in the Swiss album charts and raising approximately 300,000 Swiss Francs (325,000 US Dollars) for several charity projects. Therefore, it was a logical decision to continue the project with Children Beyond, which will be released in Switzerland and in a digital version today.
