In July 2007, Tania began her unique and authentic tribute to the multi-award winning vocalist Amy Winehouse, not only whipping up a frenzy in her home country (UK), but also taking the rest of the world by storm!
Tania's deep passion for this tribute stems from the fact she is impersonating one of her favourite singers of all time and it shows in each and every single jaw dropping performance, leaving audiences and professionals alike amazed. Such is the importance of the authenticity of Tania's work, she has, and still continues to put in vast amounts of work for her art. Not content with only perfecting that unique vocal style and sound that Amy has since become infamous for, she believes that every head tilt, skirt flick and even the hair twirling has to be spot on! Every detail has been studied with such accuracy that this isn't just a vocal performance. This has become the full Amy Winehouse experience!
You cannot get closer. And by raising such a high bar, this is what sets Tania apart from anyone else that's currently out there.
Since the sudden and tragic passing of Amy in July 2011, Tania is more passionate than ever about, not only keeping Amys music alive, but paying a special and touching tribute to her.
This heartfelt determination has seen Tania and her work go from strength to strength over the past 6 years, appearing as a lookalike and performer in countless TV shows and magazines internationally, including a Spanish national advertising campaign in 2009.
More recently this led to a highly successful full summer season starring in the highly acclaimed show "Stars In Concert" in 2013.
The show can be solo or with a 5 piece band to give that full live feel, . The show can also come as a trio or just acoustically for those more intemate events and weddings.

It was the day of Amys husband Blakes Trial, the BBC show thought that the press hounded Amy too much and on this stressful day they should leave her alone.
Tania was called in to divert the attention of the paparazzi .
Along with the 2 male presenters of the show and around 10 other girls all dressed in Amy style wigs, clothes and make up, they walked to the court creating alot of attention. After standing in the freezing cold for an hour, Amys car pulled up, Tania and Garren (the main presenter) ran all the way after the car to the front entrance, only to be told she had already gone in. They managed to talk with the driver of Amys car briefly and thought maybe she was still in the back hiding.

Tribute artistes Darren and Tania Alboni presented a segment of their two hour Ultimate Tribute Show, with a glimpse of their Amy Winehouse and Mick Hucknall impressions. If this rest of the show is up to this standard, then surely lucrative cruise ship work would seem to be assured. The vocal quality and the sincerity of the impressions will surely make this a superior addition to the tribute market. The sound-alike quality - in particular the Mick Hucknall - impression was quite stunningly accurate
