The Original Tina Turner Celebrity Impersonator
Tina Turner Impersonator and Tribute Artist, Hollie Vest has thrilled audiences since 1985 with her amazing look-alike and sound-alike spot on Tina Turner impersonation. It is well documented that Hollie Vest was the first professional Tina Turner Tribute act in the United States and North America. Her corporate clients are true believers that as Tina Turner…Hollie Vest really is “Simply the Best” Tina Turner impersonator, even after they have gotten right next to her for photos, Hollie still has a difficult time convincing some audience members that she is not the real Tina Turner, but indeed a professional celebrity impersonator and rock recreation of Tina Turner. Many agree that the two could have been twins separated at birth.
Hollie Vest's Celebrity Tribute Performed Internationally
Tina Turner’s 1996 “Wildest Dreams Tour” was rehearsed and launched in the same South African resort where Hollie Vest was performing her Tina Turner Tribute in the Sun City Extravaganza Show "Beyond Belief" at the same time. The two Tina Turners had both of their photos splashed all over the resort (the real Tina Turner and Hollie Vest as Tina Turner). As a promotional stunt for the production show “Beyond Belief”, dressed as Tina Turner, resort marketing team had the press meet Hollie Vest aka Tina Turner as she arrived unannounced a day early, at the Sun City Resort Palace where the real Tina Turner was due to check in the next day . This threw the Palace staff and resort guests into frantic camera and security frenzy. Everyone believed that Hollie Vest was the real Tina Turner and the press ran the article the next day (see article on reviews page).
For the next six weeks the real Tina Turner rehearsed her upcoming show/tour in one building and Hollie performed her Tina Turner recreation and impersonation of the Queen of Rock n Roll in the building next door. Hollie got to study Tina close up and personal, see three dress rehearsal concerts, a video shoot and hang out with some of Tina Turners Band. This truly was an honor to chosen from all the Tina Turner impersonators that were auditioned throughout the United States, Canada and England as the best of the best and to perform in a show that would be appearing in the same resort where the real Tina Turner would be rehearsing and performing. This opportunity was indeed the thrill of a lifetime for Hollie Vest to perform as her idol Tina Turner in the same resort and for all of the Tina.
