Tina Turner rowing gently down the stream

Scroll down to content

Tina Turner’s most famous song is one about a boat: Proud Mary. However, the following song is quite a departure from this tune. Below you will find the audio track of Tina singing the children’s song Row, Row, Row Your Boat. She recorded this song, with her band members on backing vocals, during the rehearsals for one of her concerts on the Wildest Dreams tour in Europe 1996 and it was released in 1997 on the compilation album Carnival! – a charity CD (now out of print) for Sting’s Rainforest Foundation. Tina had earlier performed in 1993 at a charity concert for this foundation at Carnegie Hall in New York. So, sit back and enjoy one of Tina’s more ‘unusual’ recording.

  1. I assumed that Sting said to her “Look, I’ll lay down a vocal on Silent Wings IF you contribute a track to my wife’s foundation.”.

    1. Hi Kevin,

      It would be surprising that Sting did it that way. Apparently they thought about him for “On Silent Wings” and he came right away to do the vocals.
      Tina probably recorded “Row Row” because it was for a charity and also because she is a good friend of Sting 😉
      Sometimes, people (even stars) can do stuff without hidden interest 😉

  2. OMG, that´s amazing. I have never heard this song and never seen this picture. Thank you very much guys. The song a little bit sounds like a Christmas song, doesn´t it? 😉
