CHILDREN BEYOND - understanding through singing
Under the title CHILDREN BEYOND, the three singers Tina Turner, Regula Curti and Dechen Shak-Dagsay have released their second album in October 2011. The aim of this project, which follows on from the platinum album BEYOND, is to make a contribution for peace and tolerance.
Together with 30 children from different cultures and nations, the three singers have recorded sung versions of twelve prayers and mantras from the religions Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Judaism, Islam and Sikhism. The rock legend sings the song «The Calling» together with 30 children, calling on the listeners to sing themselves: «When you sing you do the right thing – sing!» The album ends with the song «Unity». The three singers and the children interpret the affirming formulae of all world religions with the message «We are all one!»
All of the artists proceeds are passed on to their respective foundations (TINA Foundation, SEESCHAU Foundation and DEWA CHE Foundation)

BEYOND - Buddhist and Christian Prayers
On the album BEYOND, Tina Turners voice comes along with the Buddhist and Christian songs by Dechen Shak-Dagsay and Regula Curti. Inspired by old and new writings by masters from different cultures, as well as her very personal spiritual experience, Tina formulates spoken messages, which are melodiously combined with the singing of Regula and Dechen.
Born a Baptist, and for some years now an avowed Buddhist, Tina Turner is still a role model for millions of women. To this day, many people draw courage and vitality from her voice. “Since my childhood, I have tried to grow spiritually and to take the right path. It is important that every single one of us finds this, their own path, regardless of faith or religious denomination. It is the only way to find inner balance.” In particular, the repeated recitation of mantras has supported her tremendously in this regard.
The three women and the talented producers Gunter Mende and Eun Kim-Mende created an universal and passionate sound. Their music along with the prayers carry the blessing of all the enlightened. It is our deepest believe that love and compassion are the unifying essence of every religion.
