Sonny Turner to perform at Access Showroom

5 January 2017

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Legendary vocalist Sonny Turner, former lead singer of The Platters, brings his signature style to Access Showroom at Aliante Casino Hotel and Spa on Saturday, 11 February.

Turner hit the national scene in 1959, when he was selected from 100 prospects to replace The Platters' original lead singer, Tony Williams. Starting age 19, Turner toured the world with The Platters, performing hits "I Love You 1000 Times," "With This Ring," and "Washed Ashore." He also re-recorded the group's major songs, including "Only You," "The Great Pretender" and "The Magic Touch."

In 1970, Turner left The Platters to pursue a solo career. His vocals can be heard on the soundtracks of movies "The Nutty Professor II" starring Eddie Murphy, "Hearts in Atlantis" starring Anthony Hopkins and "Prince of the City" starring Robert DeNiro.

In 2005, Turner received The Lifetime Excellence in Entertainment Award presented to him by Consumer's Entertainment Exchange and the Doo Wop Hall of Fame. He is also a member of The Vocal Group Hall of Fame and Beach Music Hall of Fame for his musical contributions to The Platters.

Showtime is 8 p.m. Tickets start at $30.50 plus tax and fees, and luxury booths are also available. Guests 21 or older may purchase tickets by calling 702.692.7777 or by visiting the Aliante Gaming website.
