Paula has clocked up as many as 18/20 tours of Scandinavia with her
'Ladies of Rock2' Show
and was dubbed Britain's Tina Turner!
She headlined the launch of Coca Cola ’Sprite’ at the Falconer Centre,
Copenhagen and also Denmark’s yearly Sankt Hans festival in Nyhaven,
During the show Paula dedicated Tina’s ’The Best’
to Robert for his achievements and work for charity over the past 25 years.
Robert quoted, “In the 25 years of my
organizing charity events I have never had a cabaret as excellent as this.
Paula, thank you so much.” Paula brought the
house down and received yet another ovation. Robert Winsor has since been
awarded, on the Queen’s Birthday, the ‘MBE’ for his dedication, considerable
achievements and contribution to charity in the last 7 years on the island
of Majorca. Congratulations Robert.
Jasper Carrot, one of the many celebrities
attending the event, also thoroughly enjoyed Paula’s performance as Tina and
later quoted at the Celebrity Dinner, “Paula,
as Tina Turner you were absolutely fantastic!”
On the gala evening
at Santa Ponsa Country Club, Paula performed a
‘cameo’ show of
Cher, featuring Cher’s ‘Farewell Tour’
versions, of the most well remembered tracks. Including, ‘If I Could Turn
Back Time’ and the medley, ’Half Breed’, Gypsy’s Tramps and Thieves, and
‘Dark Lady’. Ken Ross, of Celebrity Magazine
quoted in an article from the magazine, “Paula
Randell, whose impersonation of Cher was fabulous and had everyone on their
feet dancing. The look, the outfits and the voice brought Cher right into
the club. What a night it had been, the guests were again so appreciative
of the spectacle they had witnessed, none had ever seen such a show”.

Paula had a high profile appearance in an eight week engagement starring
in her own 'one woman' show 'Ladies
of Rock 2'
in Le Bistro Theatre at the famous “Riviera Hotel and Casino” Las Vegas.
Performing as Tina Turner, Cher and Herself.
Paula’s performance was incredible and both John
and Paula received a standing ovation. John later quoted and signed, (see
snapshot of Paula live on stage in the Riviera Casino, Las Vegas
that John signed for her) “It was just like
singing with the'Duchess' (Tina’s
affectionate name on tour). “you’ve definitely
got the voice and Tina off to a ‘T’!” "It feels just like Tina next to me!"
What a superb accolade from the ‘man himself’,
John Miles, an
extremely talented songwriter, with a terrific voice. Fans will no doubt,
also remember John for his massive worldwide hit 'Music' (Was My First
Love) log onto
In May 2005
Paula attended the Robert Winsor Charity Golf Classic
held at the Royal Bendinat Golf Club in Majorca, Spain. She appeared as
Tina Turner on the team selection evening and as Cher on the gala tournament
evening. During her performance as Tina, Paula had the greatest pleasure of
inviting John Miles on stage, (Tina Turner’s lead guitarist and vocalist
for over 12 years) to perform a duet, entitled,
’Try a Little Tenderness’, the identical version that
both Tina and John performed, for over 2 years, on her 24/7 Tina the Last
Time Tour. Click

This fantastic 'live' shot of
John Miles performing again for the prestigious
and hugely successful Robert Winsor Charity Golf Classic was
captured by Ken of Majorca's Celebrity Magazine....We had the most
incredible time... I was privileged to be able to perform 2 of
Tina's tracks with John this year.
'Try A little Tenderness'. John took
the stage for his set, after having had fantastic comedy entertainment by host,
International star Jasper
Performing 3 songs, one of which was an amazing version of the duet
he performed back in 95 'live' with
Andrea Bocceli at the proms...'Misere',
a beautiful, emotive song. A rousing
rendition of his world famous 'Music'.
Having brought the crowd to a frenzy John proceeded to introduce
me....QUOTE: "Ladies and Gentlemen, I
have worked with Tina Turner for 15 years...I would like to
introduce to you a lady who I believe to be the closest person to
Tina I have ever seen. Please welcome, the incredibly
talented.... Paula Randell".
John left the stage to join his table.
Entering from the back of the room I opened my set with
and moved on to 'Addicted to Love'.
Whilst 'strutting' the intro, John got up from his seat and
proceeded to join me on stage! Amazing....the crowd cheered as we
rocked, performing the song as
a duet. We then went on to our favourite rock ballad,
'Try A Little Tenderness'.
The 150 High Profile guests absolutely loved it...We 'brought the
house down'. What a fabulous experience, we both thoroughly enjoyed
ourselves up there, as can be seen from the photograph.. I am so
proud to be able to perform with him. John has a voice like 'silk'
when he is singing his swing numbers and a voice 'to die for' when
performing rock songs. I finished the night with the only
finale, 'The Best',
which I dedicated to the wonderful 'man
himself', Robert Winsor MBE.. A
staggering 255,000 euros
was raised on the night, for what is, the largest and most successful
charity event for children in Spain. Visit Robert's website on
for more interesting info..
