Tina Arena is the name of multitalented singer-songwriter, musical theater actress, record producer, dancer, recording artist and a television personality. She is not only multitalented but multilingual as well. She sings live and records in English, Italian, French, and Spanish. She is a multi-package culturally as well, you may find it amusing that Arena was born Australian and raised Italian.
Tina Arena first appeared on a TV talent quest and variety show, Young Talent Time. Starting her journey as a contestant, Tina moved on to become a regular member of the show’s Young talent Team in 1976. She left the show in 1983, ahead of her 16th birthday. She completed her higher school certificate and worked as an insurance clerk for three months.
Arena signed a record deal with Graffiti Records at 17, and released her first debut single, “Turn Up The Beat”, in 1985. Her first single failed to impress the critics and audience and did not make it to top 50. In May 1988, she issued a single, “I Need Your Body”, which peaked at No. 3 on the ARIA Singles Chart. The artist followed with another single, “The Machine’s Breaking Down”, in August 1990, which peaked in the top 30. Her single debut album was released in October, which peaked at No. 17 on the ARIA Albums Chart. Her second solo album- Don’t Ask was very well received and the songs successfully reached the top of the charts. She has always had a successful career since and has given birth to her own legacy. She has sung for TV shows and movies. Arena has carried on with her charity work all this time and established a generous and giving nature.
Tina married Ralph Carr in 1995 and got divorced him in 1999 and settled their financial and contractual matters in February 2002. The couple does not have any children. Their marriage could not last long because the marriage left Tina feeling disconnected and unhappy. Tina had disappeared for a decade, from 2002 to 2012 after her divorce.
“The gap was very, very important,” she says. “I needed to live — I needed to know who I was, what I was doing, why I’m existing.”
“I had a complete and perpetual sense of being misunderstood,” she says. “My marriage breakdown was … horribly aggressive in so many ways.”
“I was spiritually malnourished and emotionally devoid of any kind of love,” she says. “It was a brutal realisation.”
The marriage failure was the trigger to question everything, including her successes.
“Yeah, totally,” she says. “Everything intertwined. There was no clarity, there was no separation. I was struggling to try to compartmentalize things.”
Tina escaped — to lose the pain and find herself.
Tina found love in Europe. She not only found her current partner but also received a lot of love from the audience in Europe. She has been in a relationship with French artist Vincent Mancini for a long long time; they have a son Gabriel who was born in 2005. The couple is speculated to be married as Tina posted some of their pictures in which look like their wedding pictures. She hasn't confirmed Vincent to be her husband yet but has given enough of information for us to think he is!
Tina is estimated to have a net worth of $245 million.
