Luisa Marshall to appear on Oprah on Thursday

  • May. 7, 2008 7:00 a.m.

Submitted by Steve Marshall–Tina Turner tribute artist Luisa Marshall got a call from Oprah’s producer and requested her to dress up as her idol, Tina Turner, to the taping of the biggest Oprah show ever at The Colosseum, Caesar’s Palace, in Las Vegas last weekend. After 30 years, Tina and Cher, were reunited on stage again since their famous duo stint in the 70s.The beautiful theater was filled with enthusiastic fans of the two icons who announced their surprise comeback concerts this year. The invited Tina and Cher tribute artists and impersonators added more glitz to the already very glamorous and exciting event of the year which will air on Thursday May 8. Before Tina and Cher came out, Luisa was called to go on stage to warm up the crowd of 4,000 screaming fans. Wearing her fanciest sparkly dress made by famous NY designer CD Greene, Luisa didn’t hesitate to entertain the crowd when requested to sing Tina’s hit song Proud Mary with no musical back-up. She danced on her signature high heeled shoes and asked the crowd to sing “Rollin’…” till the end of the extremely energetic number. Months ago, Luisa dreamed of performing on that stage she called the Celine Dion’s stage and last Saturday’s experience proved that sometimes dreams do come true when you least expect it.However, Luisa and her party of Tina Turner tribute artists and celebrity impersonators were more thrilled when their idol announced that she would do one last tour this year for all her fans after she was finally convinced by legendary actress Sophia Loren and Oprah Winfrey. The very youthful looking Tina, who’s 68, performed Nutbush City Limits with her band and dancers and then came back to sing Proud Mary with Cher, 61 years old. Both agreed that age is not a big deal. They are happier and more matured and have beautiful relationships. Also, during the show, both revealed how much money was left for them after their well celebrated divorces from their husbands. It was great to hear their stories the very first time these two legendary singers met. What a show. Yes, this is the biggest Oprah show ever!
