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!

Behind the scenes of the new Swisscom app IO commercial with Tina Turner!
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.
