Celebrity Impersonator Hollie Vest as Tina Turner

July 1994

BIO

The year 2005 celebrates 20 years of this Thrilling Tribute by Hollie Vest.

Hollie Vest has thrilled audiences since 1985 with her Tina Turner tribute - not exactly what one would expect of an Artist who strived to be an original singer/song writer. “The Thrill of The Hunt” CD was produced, written and performed by Hollie Vest.

Hollie Vest started entertaining professionally in 1977, and spent 15 years as a bandleader/singer performing all styles of music through out Southern California Night Clubs, Hotels, Casinos, Theme Parks and Restaurants. After many years of being compared to Tina, she surprised her audience one New Year's Eve by donning Tina Turner's attire and attitude singing “What’s Love Got To Do With It”. The audience loved it, and a star was reborn, along with a new career as a Celebrity Impersonator.

Hollie Vest performs her live tribute to Tina Turner authentically and respectfully with boundless high energy recreating the illusion (both physically and vocally) of the Queen of Rock 'N Roll for major Corporate Events, Private Parties, Cruise Ships and Las Vegas Style Production Shows around the world. The following are JUST A FEW of the HIGHLIGHTS of her career. Bill Medley of the Righteous Brothers cast Hollie as "Tina" in his Medley's Superstar Show. In 1996, she opened for the real Evander HolyField at a convention in Birmingham, Alabama. A two-year stint in South Africa in the Sun City Extravaganza Show "Beyond Belief" followed. In 2000, Hollie opened for the real Chubby Checker and closed for the real Colin Powell at a New Orleans convention. In 2002, Hollie performed as Tina Turner for the finale at a corporate Event in New Orleans at the Superdome and received a standing ovation from 12,000 people.

Over the years Hollie Vest has received awards and recognition for her talents and years of entertaining. In 1993, Hollie received the Grand Ball Entertainer Award for her 15 years of performing throughout Southern California with her band. In the same year she was given ICI Best Female R&B "Reel Award" from International Celebrity Images.

In 1999, Hollie created Thrillennium Books and published the ultimate Celebrity Impersonator book entitled “Made You Look”. Hollie's Story is one of more than 101 impersonators who share their experience and how-to tips on this unique art and career. FORWARD MAGAZINE, the magazine of Independent Publishing, announced at the 2001 Book Expo America that the Book of The Year Award Finalist for the Career Category for 2000 is “MADE YOU LOOK”.

International Celebrity Images presented Hollie Vest with the ICI 2001 Reel AWARD for Best Book on the subject of Celebrity Impersonation publisher of Thrillennium Books for publishing “MADE YOU LOOK’.

Hollie Vest, publisher of Thrillennium Books, received The IGCITA CLONEY AWARD 2002 for Best Supporting Enhancement of Celebrity Impersonation by the International Guild of Celebrity Impersonators & Tribute Artist for publishing “MADE YOU LOOK’. Hollie was also nominated for the 2002 IGCITA CLONEY AWARD for best female vocalist.

Hollie Vest was the Recipient of the 2003 International Celebrity Images award for Best Corporate Event Performance as Tina Turner for her 2002 New Orleans Super Dome show for 12,000 people, where she received a standing ovation.
