Recently Frank Ketelaar, one of the writers that wrote the script for the musical about Tina Turner’s life, talked with Marisa Heutink about meeting Tina Turner.
In the Dutch program “‘t Wordt nu laat” Frank Ketelaar told her, that they went to meet Tina Turner and stayed there for a couple of days.
They talked for hours.
He also remembers very clearly all the prizes that Tina Turner has in a special room, like 7 Grammys.
He was very impressed by that and took photos of it.
The story isn’t only about Tina Turner singing and dancing, but also about her comeback after her divorce and that she became much bigger after that.
Frank Ketelaar also tells Marisa that he got a Christmas card from Tina Turner.
And that what surprised him is, that she still has such an enormous energy for somebody of her age.
After hours of talking everybody was tired but Tina went on talking as if she wasn’t tired at all.
That is good to hear! 😀
Here is the Dutch interview:
