Chloe Bailey Tapped for Tina Turner Tribute at CNN Juneteenth Special

Published: Friday 16th Jun 2023 by Rashad

As the music industry continues to reel from the May 24 death of Tina Turner, expect even more tributes to pour in over the next few months via award shows, TV specials, concerts, and more.

And while the likes of Lizzo, Beyonce, K. Michelle, and other big industry names have already taken to the stage to lend a tribute to the ever-reigning Rock Queen, the first name tapped to do so for a televised event is rising R&B diva Chloe Bailey.

Details inside.

The 2nd annual ‘Juneteenth: A Global Celebration for Freedom’ event, presented by Live Nation Urban and Jesse Collins Entertainment, is set to be broadcast on CNN and OWN live from Los Angeles on Monday (June 19).

Bailey’s tribute to Turner shines as a highlight on a megawatt roster of performers that includes Nelly, SWV, Charlie Wilson, Coi Leray, Muni Long, Miguel, Kirk Franklin, Davido, Jodeci, and more.

“Last year, we launched Juneteenth: A Global Celebration for Freedom, and it was emotional and unforgettable for everyone involved. We’ve teamed up with our partners at CNN and Jesse Collins Entertainment again and this year we are broadcasting live from the historic Los Angeles venue, the Greek Theatre. We are looking forward to educating and celebrating the Juneteenth holiday,” shared Shawn Gee, President of Live Nation Urban.

For music lovers and supporters who want to experience the magic in person, there’s still time to buy tickets. Visit Ticketmaster for more info.

    NO, NO, and HELL NO! We do not need an over sexualized performance from her to tribute Tina Turner! That’s not what she was about and always performed with class!

      What? Are you out of your mind? That is what she was all about. I don’t know what you were watching. Get a grip and stop lying. You don’t know Tina and definitely haven’t seen her shows. What about Beyonce? Is she over sexualized?

    Yall really about to let this chile s*** up Tina’s classics? She can sing and all, and I wanna like her, but it’s that forced s** kitten, junior p0rn star wanna be persona that I can’t take. Let’s wait and see, chile.

      Let’s hope they don’t give her “Private Dancer”.

      • I ❤️ Tina Turner June 19, 2023

    • Ww50do June 17, 2023

      Tina is Beyonce idol they want Chloe . And a Nerve to ask her first. Beyonce a brat she don’t like that. But her lazy performance after Tina died that pissed off execs. Who love Tina.

      • Josh June 17, 2023

        You sound dumb. They probably asked Beyoncé, but because she’s on tour, chances are she recommended her protégé.

      • Ww50do June 17, 2023

        Asshole they could via satellite Beyonce w/ technology… For TT performance…. they skipped her for Chloe for a reason .. asshole

      • Carolyn Bratton June 17, 2023

        Beyonce can’t even touch Tina so her being on your has nothing to do with tribute.

  7. Ww50do June 17, 2023

    After Tina died bey tribute was boring. The execs don’t like that they love her MOre than Beyonce. In the diva world 🌍
