Tina Turner Performs At Launch Of Her Bio-Musical In London
For actress/singer Adrienne Warren, the only thrill that could outshine the honor of playing eight-time GRAMMY winner Tina Turner in her official bio-musical would be to join Turner onstage. With the recent London Launch of "Tina," that's exactly what happened.
Turner made a special appearance to mark the opening of the bio-musical based on her remarkable life and career. Honored and excited by the project, Turner even claimed, "This took me out of retirement," in a video posted on the musical's Twitter account.

"Growing up watching Tina, I knew how to shake my hips before I could tie my shoes," said Warren. "I am elated, honored and humbled. Meeting and working with Tina is and will always be one of the great moments of my life."
Preview performances of "Tina," which is being produced by Stage Entertainment, Joop van den Ende and Tali Pelman, in association with Turner, will begin March 21, 2018.
