Bye Bye Dave!

From The Guardian:
“CBS employee David Letterman, the current grandfather of American late night television, is retiring from the Late Show in 2015.

Letterman made the announcement during a taping of his show at the Ed Sullivan Theater in New York City on Thursday.

“What this means now, is that Paul and I can be married,” Letterman joked, referring to his longtime bandleader and sidekick Paul Shaffer.”

A look back at Tina’s appearances on the show!

1 Million Views. Namaste

In the Spring of 2014, Tina Turner, Regula Curti & Dechen Shak-Dagsay will return with “Beyond; Love Within” this time with a new addition to the team, Indian singer Sawani Shende-Sathaye. Like in “Beyond” & “Children Beyond”, “Beyond, Love Within” will feature Buddhist, Christian and Hindu Prayers. And of course great performances by all the singers… Be ready for some goosebumps!

Now the point du jour! The video clip for the peace mantra “Sarvesham Svastir Bhavatu” has just reached the milestone of 1 Million Views and still growing strong! It’s awesome to see that it is still shared and commented a lot daily, and that its message of peace is spreading around the world and different cultures.  By the time of its release, the clip was made very quickly and the result could have been much better, so here is a rework version, now in 720p. The new clip contains more footage of Tina from the “Children Beyond” documentary and also a small bit with Tina from the recording session! Enjoy!

Inside the post, the way to meditate to this Mantra and the “Children Beyond” documentary & playlist! Continue reading 1 Million Views. Namaste

One million views: thank you!

‘A one in a million chance, you know it the moment that you cross over the line.’

Today, we have reached the magic mark of one million page views for The Tina Turner Blog. We started this blog 20 months ago, and never in our wildest dreams did we imagine the success, and all the positive feedback, we’ve had so far. We are very thankful to all the people who visit our website daily, who comment on our posts, who send us e-mails, and who share their Tina stories and material with us. It gives us a lot of joy and pleasure maintaining this blog, but we couldn’t do it without your support. Therefore, as a thank you for reaching one million hits today, we share with you a 50-minute TV broadcast (in black & white) of Tina’s concert in Athens, on August 28, 1990 as part of her Foreign Affair tour. We hope you will continue to visit and support our blog, and we look forward to many more years of exciting Tina news, and treasures from the ‘vaults’.

Ben & Sjef.
