Today marks two special anniversaries to @tinaturner #TinaTurner 👑 -January 16th, 1988-TT brought #Nutbush to Brazil, setting the world ablaze with an explosive concert in RIO DE JANEIRO. That concert set a world record for Biggest Concert Attendance by a solo act, with over 180k screaming fans! -January 16th, 1991- TT was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame as 1/2 of the Ike and Tina Turner Duo. It has now been 27 years since that induction and 43 years since Tina Turner's official & respected solo efforts with the release of Recording Academy / GRAMMYs nominated #TinaTurnsTheCountryOn released August 1974. Tina Turner is not only meritorious for a solo induction however It is also imperative that SHE has it. Salutations Tina, we tip our hats to you. Thank You
30 years ago today, music history was made: ———————————————————— On January 16, 1988, TINA TURNER entered the 'Book of Records' when she performed in front of the largest paying audience ever to see a single performer (the record formerly was held by Frank Sinatra) —— 188,000 spectators came together at the Maracanã Stadium in Rio de Janeiro to see the "Queen of Rock 'n' Roll" !!! The one-night-only concert, one of only three shows in South America that year, was part of her 'BREAK EVERY RULE' world tour which broke box office records in 13 different countries. Her intense schedule for the tour included 218 concerts around the globe and well over 4 million people attended the shows.
For this tour TINA decided to not include her signature hit 'PROUD MARY' on the set-list because she felt she'd done it for too many years. After the crowd started singing it to her, she first put it back on the set-list for the gig at the Sportpaleis van Ahoy in Rotterdam, simply stating "We've got to put 'Mary' back in, she's still rolling on the river." ————————————————————

Nam-myoho-renge-kyo could be described as a vow, an expression of determination, to embrace and manifest our Buddha nature. It is a pledge to oneself to never yield to difficulties and to win over one’s suffering. At the same time, it is a vow to help others reveal this law in their own lives and achieve happiness.
Nam comes from the Sanskrit namas, meaning to devote or dedicate oneself.
Myo can be translated as mystic or wonderful, and ho means law. This law is called mystic because it is difficult to comprehend. What exactly makes it difficult to comprehend? It is the wonder of ordinary people, beset by delusion and suffering, awakening to the fundamental law in their own lives and realizing that they are inherently Buddhas able to solve their own problems and those of others.
Renge means lotus blossom. The lotus flower is pure and fragrant, unsullied by the muddy water in which it grows. Similarly, the beauty and dignity of our humanity is brought forth amidst the sufferings of daily reality. Kyo literally means sutra and here indicates the Mystic Law likened to a lotus flower, the fundamental law that permeates life and the universe, the eternal truth.
To chant Nam-myoho-renge-kyo is an act of faith in the Mystic Law and in the magnitude of life’s inherent possibilities. Nam-myoho-renge-kyo is not a mystical phrase that brings forth supernatural power, nor is it an entity transcending ourselves that we rely upon. It is the principle that those who live normal lives and make consistent efforts will duly triumph. ~ #light#love#levels#mantra#affirmations#sentientbeings#frequency#energy#shiftingvibrations#CNN#TinaTurner#lightwork#soulalchemy#selfmastery#SatNamSundays 🙏🏾✨💚
