From CNN to Rolling Stones going through Billboard, TINA has made worldwide headlines earlier this week when it was announced that the Queen of Rock would be among the 2018 recipient of the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. The 60th Grammy Ceremony will take place January 28th but no announcement of Tina’s presence there so far. However, a special gala event organised every year by the Recording Academy in the summer for the winners of the year’s Grammy Merit Awards, there’s probably more chances to see Tina there!
In order to celebrate this wonderful honour, which made fans proud and delighted for their idol, I wanted to do a one minute video recap of TINA’s solo videoclips but soon realised that it was impossible to sum up everything under one minute so, it ended being a 4 minutes TINA Trivia Tribute video! Hope you’ll enjoy and be sure to subscribe to the blog to get all the latest info on TINA and the upcoming Grammy Event!
We were all waiting to see what kind of surprises 2018 would offer and it started earlier today with the statement released by the Recording Academy indicating that Tina Turner would be among the recipients of the 2018 Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award!
Marking the Grammy’s 60th ceremony but also Tina’s 60th Anniversary in the music business, it was the year it was supposed to happen. Ten years ago, Tina teamed up with Beyonce for what would become another legendary performance from the Queen of Rock and Queen Bey.
Tina Turner is the winner of 8 Grammys and has been nominated 25 times.
This year other honorees include Neil Diamond, Emmylou Harris, Louis Jordan and English Rock band Queen. A special award presentation ceremony and concert celebrating the honorees will be held in summer 2018. Additional details regarding the ceremony will be announced in the coming weeks.
Heralded as the Queen of Rock and Roll, Turner remains a global recording star worldwide. She earned her first GRAMMY at the 14th GRAMMY Awards with Ike Turner for their rendition of “Proud Mary,” which took home Best R&B Vocal Performance By A Group. She’s since added an additional seven wins to her tally, most recently as a featured artist on Herbie Hancock‘s Album Of The Year-winning River: The Joni Letters at the 50th GRAMMY Awards.
Back in 2008 a promotional video was issued to the press for the announcement of Tina Turner’s 2008/2009 50th anniversary world tour. This video features footage backstage at her appearance on the Oprah show, the rehearsals for her Grammy Awards performance with Beyoncé earlier that year, as well as short interview bites from Tina. Here it is today plus extra footage of rehearsal!
