Dorothy Roberson is a singer-dancer from Dumas, Arkansas. After performing gospel music for over forty
years, she ventured out to other genres of music and started doing songs that were popular and performed by
some of her favorites female artists. Thanks to her huge variety of entertaining and engaging diverse
audiences, Dorothy has received a lot of accolades with public ad news media.
A singer who puts her heart and soul into each and every performance, her audience is always begging for an
encore. Although Dorothy’s roots were traditional gospel music, her repertoire has quickly expanded to
include hits performed by greats such as Tina Turner, her main act, followed by Gladys Knight, Whitney
Houston, Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Diana Ross, Donna Summer, Roberta Flack, Barbara Streisand, Celine
Dion and Chaka Khan, to name a few in her performances around the City of Chicago and other U.S. cities. It is
her diverse ability to perform many songs that has made her a favorite with the Chicago public and featured
articles in the Chicago Sun-Times, Chicago Tribune, WVON radio, WBBM radio and Chicago Timeout news
Entertaining and motivating a variety of the public is not a new passion for Dorothy; in addition to singing at
private events she has also been a repeat performer at university events, hospitals, corporate offices, supper
clubs, and Summer Festivals and concert/theater venues. After a painful divorce that caused her to lose her
income, home, car and other personal possessions, she decided to use her music skills to somehow regain
some of the things she had lost. Audiences had encouraged Dorothy to sing songs performed by Tina Turner
because of their striking physical resemblances and similar hardships in broken relationships. But it wasn’t
until performing on the streets of Chicago, notably State Street, in front of the Chicago Theater, and Macy’s, is
where she gained even more public recognition and love from the big crowd that gathered to see her each
summer. Dorothy was singing for survival, and sought to heal herself emotionally, through performing the
music of Tina Turner. She became a huge hit in Chicago as she performed with instrumental track on the
streets, then progressed by performing with live local bands as solo front singer and that is when she decided
to make music her life dream. All of the different music genres and personal struggles to survive after divorce
have positively influenced the singer for who she is today. She talks candidly about the pain of a failed
marriage that led her to discover the “Tina’ from within.
Now back to her birthplace, Dumas Arkansas, a rural area of the south is where her love of music began, her
love to perform for and motivate people flourished and her genuine care and concern to reach people through
singing has grown. Chicago WGN Morning News, Channel 9 was the first TV media to showcase her Tina
Turner impersonation. In 2016 Dorothy was interviewed and performed live on Chicago’s Fox News Channel
32, “Good Day Chicago. “Dorothy has opened up for the Temptations, the Chi-Lites, and most recently Jeffrey
Osborne at the South Shore Summer Festival. Dorothy is sharing her time speaking about her beginning as
Tina Turner and enjoying nature and preparing for her next gig. Based on the reception of her latest shows,
the future looks promising!
