However, Tina still creates a buzz whenever she shows up for any red carpet event. She is loved by fans around the world who haven’t forgotten her magical voice that serenaded the crowds in the 90’s.
In 1998, Tina broke a Guinness World Record when she performed in Maracanã Stadium in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The expensive concert broke the record for a solo artist who sang in front of 180,000. Another artist smashed the record in 1997. She is one singer who sold more tickets for a concert as a solo performer.
