Shirley Bassey is a Welch Born singer that still reigns as United Kingdom’s Top Singer. She is also 76 years old and shows a beauty of style and grace that many younger women don’t exude. Her voice is still strong, her legend intact. She clearly out ranges Stars of today vocally.
Since James Bond dominated much of the 60s and 70s, there were often Top Ranked songs from these exciting movies. Goldfinger started it all. When you hear that beautiful, vibrant, sultry, soulful, and unforgettable rendition of “Goldfinger” you are listening to Dame Shirley Bassey. She was indeed the voice of Bond having performed most of the theme songs from the Bond Movies!
Many Americans used to look at me oddly when I would say “Shirley Bassey is a great Singer”. The reason is that she has remained, for the most part in the UK, however she has entertained in America several times. People would hear her voice but since they seldom saw her she remained an enigma. She is the daughter of a
Nigerian man and an English woman and had romantic liaisons with the likes of Peter Finch.
Ms. Bassey now resides in Monaco but does make appearances on The Academy Awards with her signature song. With all the high Orchestration and Drama, she constantly rises to the occasion, looks stunning and deliver the lines that James Bond fans just adore…..”Goldfinger….he’s the man, the man with the Midas touch….” Yes, the Academy Awards show was really nice this year!
