Tina Arena: Artist Spotlight

Tina Arena - is one of my favorite singers in a long time from Australia. I first came to know this beautiful songstress via her 1995 album entitled; "Don't Ask" and the hit international single "Chains." The song and the soaring vocals instantly got my attention for there on in. I have faithfully followed her career and wanted to hear her new material. "Heaven Help My Heart" "Wasn't It Good" "Show Me Heaven" and then another album I loved from start to finish was "In Deep" released in 1997. Noteworthy songs from this album that are personal favorites are; "I Want To Spend My Lifetime Loving You" "Burn" "Sixteen Years" and others.

Tina was utilized for her "Don't Ask" album to take her fame and bring it globally starting in the
United States. Her label wanted her to be the next Celine Dion from Australia which provided a lot of pressure. "In Deep" did not see the success globally as Tina's initial global album though in my book was another lovely album filled with gems. In my book the record label did not do right by Tina by getting the exact same songwriters whom wrote for Celine to write songs that would image her. Tina Arena when one hears has a soaring voice of her own and would have been better to have allowed her to be herself with no label even before the gate opened copy but giving her the forum to shine as herself and that would have been enough.

In the year's since Tina Arena has established her fame within Europe and Australia and still has legions of fans world wide. Since her album in 1997, Tina has gone on to record several more albums such as "Just Me" in 2001, "Songs of Love & Loss" in 2007, "Songs of Love & Loss" in 2008, 7 Vries (French album) in 2008 and doing great live concert touring and appearances. 2012 saw Tina sitting in the seat on hugely televised and popular shows in Australia; "The Sing-Off" & "Young Talent Time." Along with being a judge that year Tina performed nationally in Australia in sold-out concerts.

2013, Tina released an highly anticipated album; "Reset" which was her first English language album
with original material in a decade. Also came her autobiography entitled; "Now I Can Dance."

2014, now is another big year for Tina Arena whom performed at the Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras with a show stopping performance and now is getting ready to release her album "Reset" in Europe. Lastly, the big news is that Tina is now announced a huge tour entitled; "Reset" with her date of in Perth, Australia to kick it all off in August. I can not wait and hope that this tour broadens out to reach me in the states!
