For Caroline Borole, music has been a major influence in her life. The South African-born songstress credits her family for saturating her childhood with various genres and artists, many of which helped shape Caroline’s own personal musical style.
At the tender age of 10, Caroline’s father introduced her to “The Soul of Like & Tina Turner”’, a record that sparked interest in the jazz and Blues genres. After numerous weekends of the record on repeat, Carole began to idolise the iconic female musician, taking note of Tina’s outrageous confidence and high energy.
Throughout Caroline’s schooling she took every opportunity to perform and steadily developed a lust for the spotlight. After taking home first prize at her first talent show Caroline set her sights on a musical career, eventually studying musical theatre at a tertiary level.
After her three years at university, Caroline ventured into the entertainment industry, landing notable roles on television shows and musical productions, including appearances in Generations, On the Couch, Under African skies and a starring role as Effie White in the South African national production of the musical Dreamgirls.
Eventually, Caroline found her way of becoming a member of Showtime Australia. The singer began touring as a backup singing for two of the company’s largest productions, The Greatest Love of All: Whitney Houston Show & the Michael Jackson History show. After becoming aware that Showtime Australia was bringing a new show, Tina Turner: Simply The Best, Caroline knew it was her chance to take the spotlight.
With hours of study and repetition of the Tina Turner: Simply The Best set list, Caroline used her bold personality and knowledge of various music genres to conquer Tina’s iconic growls, grunts and raspy vocals. As well as this, Caroline become acquainted with the highly intense dancing Turner performed on stage for her audiences.
