  8. justatinafan

  9. Laurel

    Thanks again for being so quick to share with all of us 🙂

  10. David

    Thanks a million Ben & Sjef….. Tina looks radiant!


  11. Peter

    Tina looks FANTASTIC! She lost a lot of weight and has great makeup applied. She is still terrible at lip synching. I found a video on Youtube that is in synch and Tina is still off LOL

    I still LOVE the performance!

    • That’s true, the lip-synching wasn’t very good. The problem is that it is impossible to do this live, with a choir of 30 children, three singers and all of this in a live tv-show. I’m sure Tina would prefer to do it live anyway. But, she’s improving: this saturday it will be perfect!

  12. Lasse

    Yes, she’s really bad at playback. It was at least better than at the press conference… That was embarrasing to see :). Great mix of the different songs… should be available as a single.

    • Yes, we will supply it as a bonus track after the performance in Berlin.

      Warm regards,

      • Thank you very much for your compliments, and please pass our congratulations to the Beyond ladies and the children for a great performance last night! Looking forward very much to the next performance in Berlin! In what form will the performance ‘remix’ be made available, as a download? We hope you keep us updated on further developments of the Beyond project and good luck next saturday!

      • Lasse

        That’s fantastic news. A Nr. 1 Christmas single !

  13. Lasse

    Let’s hope the show will bring some attention back to the “Beyond” project. Children Beyond sales look disappointing compared to the first (and let’s face it, much better) Beyond CD. The album has already left the Swiss Top 50 album charts. Maybe a re-entry next week???

    My Tina!!!!!!!

  15. Saskia

    What an amazing performance – it gives me goosebumps. Tina looks and sounds amazing – Tina will never retire. I’m so thrilled that Tina is involved in the the Beyond projects with Regula and Dechen and the kids

  16. marga

  17. Rober

  20. Faye

    Tina looks great. Thanks for sharing.

    • She does looks great! Thanks for your comment Faye 🙂

      • Cergio

        Hi Ben & Sjef, thank you… This is a true gift. Thanks… Somehow it made me think about the All the invisible children film and the duet with Elisa, Teach me Again, I don’t know why I made this connection… I think in this case is joy and the duet is more … deep?? Will you guys make a topic about that experience (fiim/duet with Elisa)? Peace!

      • Thanks Sergio for your comment, I’m glad you enoyed this performance! We will keep your suggestion about Teach Me Again in mind, for a future post on our blog.

  21. Lasse

    Yes, I have the same feeling: “Teach me again” is in the same catagory…

  22. JEAN
