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.

Congratulations to Tina Turner: last Monday, she was handed her Swiss Passport. Having lived in Switzerland for over 15 years, she is now an official citizen of the country. Newspaper Blick reports that on April 22, she visited the Swiss passport bureau in Zürich together with husband-to-be Erwin Bach. Formalities, including taking a photo, took about 15 minutes. Before being able to apply for the passport, Tina had to take a citizenship test and learn the German language. We wish Tina a lot of happiness in her life as ‘Schweizerin’!
