Justine said: “I am thrilled by the success of this production – we have come so far!

“Having been told on many occasions that I sounded like Tina, I decided to take the plunge and then spent hours familiarising myself with her life story and scrutinising video footage to watch mannerisms and body movements.

 “We always add our own personality to the Show each year; the element of surprise keeps things fresh, but my ultimate aim is to remain faithful to a Tina Turner live concert paying tribute to her career, and bring the best version of this amazing woman; her voice, her passion and even her legs, to her many fans. 

“That’s why we love it when people tell us that they go away feeling as though they have seen the real thing.”

Totally Tina, from 2013 to 2019, has won Best Female Artist, Best Choreography, Best Sound & Lighting and the Lifetime Achievement Award at the NTMA, and in 2020 and 2021, scooped the Best Tribute award at the NREA and NEA respectively.

The Northern Echo: Tribute - Totally Tina returns to Clacton.

The band has performed across the country and Europe, and have played at the Cover Festival in Davos, Switzerland (Tina Turner’s adopted home country) the last few years.

Justine previously worked as an Anastacia tribute act before changing thing up, and has been singing professionally for 30 years.

Organisers have said the production is both a mix of nostalgia and surprise with all the favourite Tina Turner hits, her best duets, much-loved covers and a few twists.
