As humans, we always explore to widen our horizons and to gain new experiences. Just like Music Artists who always want to try something new. Maybe, for better exposure or the fans. Indeed, Tina Turner is one of the biggest names in the Music Industry, but did you know that she had recorded a Country Music Album.
“The Woman with a Versatile Genre”
Tina Turner or Anna Mae Bullock was referred to as the “Queen of Rock ‘n’ Roll” and a Guinness World Record holder. The woman doesn’t only sing, her talents include, dancing, acting-, and songwriting, she is indeed a multi-talented person.
Due to her incomparable talent and charm, she is one of the world’s Best-Selling Artists of All Time. In addition, she has sold more than 200 million albums and singles worldwide. Wow!-, She knows how to make good music. Through her music career, she won 12 Grammy Awards, 3 Grammy Hall of Fame lastly, a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. This woman dominated Music Industry. Thus, she remained an inspiration to other Music Artists.
“The Touch of the Queen”
“Help Me Make It Through The Night” was written and sang by Kris Kristofferson as a country music ballad. While the song had many versions, it remained commercially successful and well-known. Admittedly, the song was criticized because of its man’s yearning for sexual intimacy, and it became controversial in the 70’s.
Despite the controversies, Turner still made her version of the song, while incorporating her style. In my opinion, her version is classy and sexy-, due to her crisp jazzy slight husky voice. In fact, she released a compilation of covers from various country music artists entitled “Tina Turns the Country On!” but it did not have a commercial success. To this date, her songs still grab the music spotlight and her fans; it seems Tina will keep on turnin’.
