She has been thrilling audiences for over forty years and sells out concert venues everywhere and she has the ability to turn every song she sings into a classic. She is, quite simply one of the greatest British female singers ever. Her name is Shirley Bassey.

She was born Shirley Veronica Bassey in Tiger Bay, Cardiff. Wales on January 8th 1937 and after working in a factory and singing in clubs at the weekend she turned professional when she was sixteen years old. Her first job as a pro was in the touring revue "Memories of Al Jolson" and in 1955 she was discovered by bandleader Jack Hylton who put her in a revue alongside the Lancashire comedian Al Read; and it went down a storm at it's venue - the Adelphi Theatre in London. Her recording career began soon after and in 1957 she had her first Top Ten hit with "The Banana Boat Song". Over the years she has notched up over thirty charting singles which included two chart toppers - "As I Love You" - in 1959 and "Reach For The Stars / Climb Ev'ry Mountain" in 1961 - and then other Top Ten hits. Her album sales have also been enviable with, again over thirty chart entries, half a dozen of them getting into the Top Ten. Shirley has the distinction of being the most successful British female singer with 326 weeks in the UK singles charts - that's over six years.

Her greatest strength is her live performance, she always appeared stunning with exquisite gowns (which it was rumoured she only ever wore once), which were usually backless and strapless causing the male members of the audience to gasp in anticipation and the female members to gasp in envy.
