Until then, and to celebrate the new year, a new upload, and a funny one, Tina receiving Berolina Awards in 1987. Being held in Germany while Tina was on tour in Canada, a satellite connection had to be established between presenter Thomas Gottschalk and Tina. Unfortunately, technical issues are gonna spice up things a little bit… Watch it here with English subtitles! A big thanks to Anja for the transcription!
“Big wheel keep on turning, Proud Mary keeps on burning”
The only certainty in life is that nothing is certain. Everything changes, nothing stays the same. When Tina Turner was asked for her sixtieth birthday what kind of message she wants to deliver to her audience, she answered exactly that. The feeling that everything changes and nothing stays the same.
So it is officially confirmed: Tina Turner is sponsoring her home community in Küsnacht with Christmas lights.The rock legend ensures that Christmas spirit comes to the Lakes. Together with representatives of the local council Tina Turner has examined various options and finally chosen the lighting “Golden Twig” (golden branch). “As a citizen of Küsnacht Tina Turner is pleased to contribute to the townscape in this way”.
The donation remains secret. Tina Turner will pay for the cost for this year, yet, the amount remains a mystery. According to “Zurich newspaper” it is worth around 250,000 francs.
The lights will be switched on next week, November 26, on Tina Turner’s 75th birthday! Here is a first glimpse at the street with the decoration. Listen to a Swiss radio report of the event here!

In only a few days, the new Swisscom video commercial featuring Tina has reached 200,000 views and growing. Media worldwide made the video go viral. A very encouraging figure which, let assume, will make the campaign for the iO app a success. Will it lead to something else in the future in a more artistic way? Only time will tell…
Plus, here is a new interview with Tina (in German) posted today on the website Horizon.net!
Tina gave an interview to Swiss magazine Blick about her life in Switzerland and being the new face for Swisscom app IO. The Queen of Rock tells us how much she loves living in Switzerland and why (even being the spokesperson for a communication app) she prefers not be reachable and accessible to her fans and the public.
Great News! Tina Turner is making the cover of this month issue of Swiss magazine “Schweizer Illustrierte”. She gave the newspaper a new interview but the photo used are recycled from last year Vogue issue. Still, a very candid, fun Questions/Answers interview where Tina talks about her life in Switzerland, her house, music and being the new face for Swisscom app IO!
