It is not often that I get the chance to see and take pictures of the rich and famous stars of Turkey however last night, I was treated to front row seats at a concert by Hande Yener and had a fantastic opportunity to snap the photos included in this post. Hande Yener is a woman with status who oozes talent and captivates everyone that crosses her path.
Who is Hande Yener?
She is a famous Turkish Pop singer that is often compared to Madonna for two simple reasons. With every album that she releases, there is obvious experimentation with new styles, vibes and rhythms.
Her eagerness to explore and push the boundaries in the field of Turkish pop music has paid off, earning her an amazing 17 million sales of her records around the world. She has inspired fans around the world to enroll in vocal lessons at takelessons.com and many other institutions.
Along with the new music, comes a fresh look and style to her public image, hence the comparison to Madonna. Changing your image with every new album worked wonders for Madonna and this technique has also made Hande Yener, one of the top female Turkish pop stars.
Hande Yener has been credited with a number of awards and honors when it comes to the Turkish pop music scene so when I got the chance to attend one of her concerts, I was of course, delighted. She was appearing at the Venosa Beach Resort in Didim and listening to her in real life, only proves the certainty that she is a natural born entertainer.
Her looks, her style, her voice and the way that the camera instantly falls in love with her, explain why she has amassed a huge fan base of followers both young and old. I hope you like my favorite photos in black and white that I took at the concert last night. I think they show her amazing talent to perform to the masses.
