Tina Turner - Children Beyond - Press Conference

On September 28, Tina Turner together with Regula Curti and Dechen Shak-Dagsay and a group of 30 children presented their new album Children Beyond in Zurich, Switzerland at the Kaufsleuten restaurant. It started at 3pm with the screening of the promotional movie, directed by Xaver Walser, narrated by Tina Turner, which explains the message behind the Beyond project.

After this, Tina, Regula and Dechen took the stage for a short question and answer session. Tina looked beautiful, with long, curly hair in a ponytail, a golden top, black pants and high heels. She explained because the music is so modern, even people who are not religious will take over the message through the music. They introduced also the new website 'Beyond Universe‘ (now Beyond Foundation), where users can create their own mantras using the words and the music of Beyond. Then the three ladies performed together with a group of thirty children the song „When You Sing“ on stage.

Finally, the press had the chance to ask some questions. Tina was asked how it was for her to sing in such a different way, in different languages and in different styles. She answered, that she enjoyed it very much and although it wasn’t her idea originally, she had a lot of fun, especially with the rap part. She really enjoy this new kind of music. Tina was also asked what she remembers about singing in her childhood. She replied that she was always entertaining the people when she was young and singing has always been a part of her life. Tina also explained, that she will always continue to record music when something interesting comes along, like this project.
