"On Silent Wings" is a song by Tina Turner with guest vocals from Sting. Released in April of 1996 in support of Turner's Wildest Dreams album, the single performed reasonably well on the U.S. Adult Contemporary music chart, peaking at number 24. Like much of Turner's later work, "On Silent Wings" enjoyed greater success in the U.K., topping out just shy of the top ten at number 13 on the singles chart, in Poland the track was #1 for five weeks. The single included the country-flavoured single edit with additional guitar overdubs, later appearing on the 2004 compilation All the Best, as well as a second alternative version of the track. Some formats also featured the non-album track "Do Something", written by Holly Knight and Mike Chapman and produced by Trevor Horn.
The dance version of "On Silent Wings", re-mixed by Soul Solution, charted at #47 on the U.S. dance chart. Neither released nor supported by the label, that the dance mix charted at all was due almost entirely to its inclusion by D.J. Julian Marsh on his Centaur Music release Winter Party 1998.
The music video released to support the single featured Turner standing on the edge of a cliff in a white dress interspersed with live performance clips.
