"The Show Must Go On"
A Celine Dion Tribute Show
Turquoise tributes the timeless music of Celine Dion with, "The Show Must Go On", a selection of Celine's Top hits that have inspired millions.
Turquoise formed when Emily was asked what artist she thought she would enjoy tributing for an upcoming tribute band tour. Immediately Celine Dion came to her mind. She had spent her adolescent years replaying and singing all of Celine's hits. She was excited when a group of very talented musicians shared her passion for Celine's music.

One of her favorite performances was singing, This Is My Now, for over 10,000 people for a gala event at the Mirage Hotel in Las Vegas. She enjoys learning, writing, and recording originals and covers, and is excited to produce more music in years to come. She got the idea to start a Celine Dion tribute band from a friend, and is encouraged by the strides being made to bring the show to life.
