Dallas Student Bound for Broadway
Skye Turner is no stranger to the spotlight. The student from Charles Rice Learning Center in Dallas has performed with the Dallas Symphony Orchestra and even sang alongside her musical idol Patti Labelle.
And she will soon perform in New York City, when she makes her Broadway debut in the highly anticipated "TINA: The Tina Turner Musical." Skye will portray a young version of the musical legend.
Last year, she became an online sensation when LaBelle posted a video of the young Turner singing her 1983 hit “If Only You Knew” on her Instagram account. Turner was then invited to appear on the “Steve Harvey Show” and while she was singing, Labelle made a surprise entrance and the two sang together.
Skye recently performed with the Dallas Symphony Orchestra as part of their summer Parks Concerts series. She also performed at the Dallas school system’s 2018 State of the District.
“TINA: The TINA Turner Musical” opens Nov. 7 at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre in New York City.
