REBECCA O'Conner is the only artist touring the world that has been personally endorsed by the queen on rock 'n' roll, Tina Turner.
Rebecca knew in the early stages of her career that she had a unique voice like that of her role model and has been perfecting her sound ever since. In Tina's words: “Rebecca is so good it's scary”. “I'm still pinching myself after her endorsement,” Rebecca said. “I just wanted to sing like Tina as I loved her rough and raunchy voice and the outfits, of course. “In my eyes, Tina had it all and I'm lucky enough to have followed through with my dream of becoming an entertainer and living my dream.”
Joining her first band at 17, Rebecca incorporated countless Tina songs into their set list, drawing on inspiration and motivation for her own performance. “The perseverance and hard work paid off in the long run,” she said.
“It wasn't and still isn't easy, but I love what I do, and I'm surrounded by good people and it's a pleasure bringing joy to people's lives through music.”
The sassy performer has since played many times to a sold-out crowd around the world and at the Hervey Bay RSL, where she is back by popular demand on Saturday, March 13.
A feature of the performance is that she is herself on stage. “I do not do the show in first person … I'm Rebecca and I sing Tina's songs, but I am not Tina. “What I do is keep Tina Turner's music alive.
Be prepared to stand and groove along with some of Tina's greatest hits including Nutbush City Limits, Proud Mary, River Deep, Private Dancer, When the Heartache is Over and of course her anthem, Simply the Best.
