At the 3rd event she didn’t get an award, but I wanted you to show the very nice photos of it. It is at the Music and Fashion Awards in 1995, where she performed “Goldeneye“. This was to promote her new single and it was the first time she performed “Goldeneye” live.


The 4th Award ceremony is at the MOBO (Music of Black Origin) in 1999. Tina Turner received the Lifetime Achievement Award. The name says it all.


Tina Turner performs “When the heartache is over” and after she has been introduced by Lionel Richie she performs “Let’s stay together“.


And the last one I mention is the TARA Award, the Beyond Group got in 2014.

This Award stands for the compassionate heart of a Bodhisattva and people who live it through love in action.

And 2 videos. One with Tina Turner thanking for the Award and one from the ceremony.

We, as Tina Turner fans, feel that the one award that is missing is the “Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award“.

Wouldn’t it be great if that would happen next year, the year in which Tina the Musical will have its première?
We can only hope. 😀
