CCA Staff: How long have you been putting on the show PROUD Tina? What has been your favorite part about it?
Caroline Borole: Proud Tina has been running since 2017 and I have been involved with the show the entire time. My favorite part of the show to be honest is everything. I know it’s corny, but I love all the songs and performing each and every one of them. They all bring different emotions through the loves songs and power ballads, they’re all so different which is why I love every part of the show.
Tell us what you love about Tina Turner?
I love her strength, she was so resilient coming out of a terrible situation and she just flourished and said ‘I can do this.’ For me, it teaches us as women on a whole that we can be independent, and we don’t need men to do this thing called life. She succeeded so greatly after she left him (Ike Turner), he left her with nothing and yet she still flourished.
What musicians/bands are you listening to right now? We love recommendations!
I’m currently hooked on Musicals. I am a musical theatre person, so I appreciate the difficulty of the songs these performers create. At the moment I’m listening to Grease on repeat!
If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
I have been so privileged to travel so vastly and widely however there is no place like home, my country and my surroundings. I love and appreciate every country I’ve been to and some places have been so grand, but nothing beats home so that’s where I’d like to live.
If you were not a musician, what other profession would you want to have?
I’d go into Law, I feel like I could have been a great lawyer, or something in Law as a whole. I still have a huge interest in it, maybe I could still go into it!
Is there anything else you would like to tell our patrons?
Proud Tina is going to be an awesome show perfect for everyone of any age! I’m so excited to see you all at the show so be sure to book your tickets ASAP!
