TINA Musical Project


Queen has “We Will Rock You”, Abba has “Mama Mia”, Gloria Estefan just launched her “Get on Your Feet” show…. Musical blockbusters!
Tina Turner’s life has already been portrayed a few times on stage but never a big dimension project. However it seems like things are going to change… After years of mentioning it in several interviews, a real project with an official involvement from Tina herself will probably see the light of the day in the near future thanks to Dutch theatrical producer Joop Van Den Ende.

If it does happen that means that Tina will also get involved in promoting the musical in some sort of way so that’s something to look forward to!
Thanks to DJ for the info!

They Celebrated Tina this week!

Tina Turner 75 Birthday 2014

A week after Tina’s 75 birthday, it is time to do a round up of the internet and check out those who (apart from the Tina Turner Blog of course) celebrated the Queen of Rock this week!

First a rockin rendition of Tina’s first hit recorded in 1960, “A Fool in Love” by Fleur East on UK “X Factor”. Very fresh and modern result! Good luck to Fleur!

After rocking, let’s Vogue! Last year ‘Cover Girl‘ receives the magazine greetings! The “Huffpost” offers us “10 Times Tina Turner’s Legs were Simply The Best”! Fancy some ranking? The “BlackLot” gives it a try and ranks “The Top 20 Tina Turner Solo Song”. Very serious “International Business” for its part states that  “The Original Diva of Pop and Soul is Still Simply the Best”.  German magazine “Bild gives Tina a full treatment in text and rare photos! You “Junkees” want more? A great tribute and fun reading on their website!  Now, let’s go to Spain where ‘EL Mundo’ says “Why Tina stays the Queen of  Rock  at 75”. 75 years in 75 photos.

The Beyond Team send us an email asking to share their FB status (and this pic above) as well as their greetings to Tina! There it is:

May the long time sun shine upon you
All love surround you and the pure light within you
Guide your way on, guide your way on

Happy Birthday and enjoy!
In deepest gratitude for all what you have given us.
Regula, Dechen, Sawani and the BEYOND Team

What a life! And LIFE indeed gives respect to Queen Tina with rare, unpublished photos!

Let’s conclude our journey, in video, in Tina’s beloved city of Kusnacht where she exclusively lives for the past 19 years. Swiss TV SFR takes us on a tour of  places where Tina ventures in the village!

And you? How did you celebrate Tina? Feel free to add any comments or articles in the comment section! Thanks!

Awards, Streetlights & TV


Once again, Tina is making news with small video apparitions from her Swiss Mansion and in local newspaper:

A new video emerged today on Beyond Fb page of Tina giving thanks for receiving the prestigious TARA Awards in Bangkok. Very short but funny and of course always nice to see the Queen.

According to this Swiss Newspaper, Tina is donating Christmas lights for her street in Küsnacht. About 250.000 swiss francs  but the city has to vote about accepting it or not!

And finally, a few weeks ago, Tina appeared on German tv to congratulate singer Udo Jurgens on his 80th birthday! Here’s the video thanks to Anja!
