A very Merry Christmas to Mr & Mrs Bach and to every readers of Tina Turner Blog! Wishing you all happy and healthy holidays with your loved ones and let’s not forget those who are alone and less fortunate.
A few updates concerning the blog:
First, you’ll find in the Menu a new ‘TINA The Musical‘ section! A simple click to read every updates and informations we have so far concerning the forthcoming musical on Tina Turner’s life.
Second, two new additions to our Networks with TINA Blog Videos & TINA HD. You’ll respectively find on both pages, the video montage I’ve made for Tina Turner Blog and every High Definition/4K uploads from our Youtube channel in one place!
Thirdly, a new ‘Archives’ button is making its apparition (on the left side of the page if you are on your computer, at the bottom if you are viewing the mobile version of the blog) to help you navigate more easily throughout six years of blogging on Tina Turner Blog!
And because Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without a small present, here is a new video upload of Tina giving an incredible rendition of her classic hit ‘Let’s Stay Together’ unplugged on American TV back in 1997. Who else thinks that the concept of re-arranging Tina’s songs unplugged should have come to reality somehow!? I say, not too late for a ‘TINA Unplugged: One Night Only’ live in Zurich!
In 2009, we got something from Tina Turner which we did not expect at all. What happens if a rock star, a member of the entertainment business and your personal hero suddenly confronts you with personal and even religious beliefs? As you somehow cannot ignore what your hero is doing you have to deal with it….
Teach Us Again Tina! Exciting news for all the Beyond fans out there! A very nice sneak peek video from the recording of the upcoming Beyond album has emerged earlier on Youtube. And guess what! Parts of the music from the album have been recorded by the Philharmonia Orchestra at the legendary London’s Abbey Road Studio where Tina recorded her classic hit Let’s Stay Together among others!
What do we know so far? The new Beyond album, ‘Awakening Beyond’ will feature Buddhist nun singing for freedom, Ani Choying Drolma as well as Jewish Sephardic singer Mor Karbasi. The great Regula Curti, the creator of the Beyond albums will once again unite her voice with the mesmerizing Sawani Shende. Tibetan singer Dechen Shak-Dagsay however won’t be featured on the new album, currently promoting her ‘Day Tomorrow’ album.
Also some news on the production side! Kareem Roustom, an Emmy nominated composer who has composed music for film, television, the concert hall and album projects will compose music for the album. Steeped in the musical traditions of the Near East and trained in Western concert music and Jazz, Syrian-born Kareem Roustom is a musically bilingual composer who has collaborated with a wide variety of artists.
This all sound very promising of course and we can’t wait to hear more from the upcoming Beyond IV: Awakening Beyond and let’s not hide it, so we can delight us from the hypnotic voice of Tina once more!
We send Peace & Light to everyone involved in the project!
Beyond IV: Awakening Beyond
Artists: Tina Turner – Regula Curti – Sawani Shende Santhaye – Ani Choying Drolma- Mor Karbasi – Dima Orsho Producer: Erwin Bach Composer: Kareem Roustom Conductor: Arturo Rodriguez Technic: John Weston
Tina Turner and her husband Erwin Bach were spotted at the French most elegant Ousteau De Baumanière located in the Les Baux de Provence! Happy cuisine staff even got the chance to have their photo taken with the legendary singer!
2016 is already two months old and so far, we did not hear anything from Tina Turner, her record company or anybody else about a mandatory ‘de luxe edition’ and commemorative box set of her “Break Every Rule” album which turns 30 this year. What we heard, however, were literally a dozen requests from our readers for such a release so that we feel compelled to cry out for help in this matter: We want “Break Every Rule” released in a spectacular 30th anniversary edition! (By the way, Thanks for ‘Private Dancer 30th Anniversary’ last year Mr Bach!)
Just to be clear about this: this is not really a mere suggestion or a hint that such a release is absolutely essentially necessary and highly awaited but rather a demand. Just think of it as an online petition. But we safe you the burden of reading through our Excel sheets with all the names and email addys and simply call a spade, a spade here.
Remember last year when we wrote that Tina was offering Christmas decoration for her city Kusnacht, in Zurich’s neighborhood? Until then the Seestrass, were Tina lives, didn’t have any! But today,the Queen of Rock attended a little celebration with Kusnacht mayor Markus Ernst and turned on the decorations lights for this year which was followed by a “Wow” from that “unmistakable throaty voice”. The Legend, nearly 76 looked radiant in black and we’re happy to see her looking so fine!
Tina was accompanied by her husband Erwin Bach who said goodbye on behalf of both with the words:
“We wish peace in the world at Christmas”
We also wish everybody a peaceful Christmas next month, a joyful Thanksgiving and of course a very Happy Birthday to Tina!
Tina Turner and husband Erwin Bach were spotted this week in Zurich! And since today is July 4th, we would like to wish them a very happy second wedding anniversary! For more photos from this event read inside the article! You can also read a nice report from People magazine about it!
Tina Turner and husband Erwin Bach were spotted this week near Zurich visiting Emil Frey’s ‘Classic Car Center’. And for the occasion we get to see Tina in full white suit which is too rare not too be noticed!
