Singer of the title songs for GOLDFINGER, DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER and MOONRAKER

I was happy to see meet Shirley Bassey at the Vue sur Bond festival in Quebec City during the weekend of 24-26 February 2006.

She made a great performance there singing two out of her three Bond title songs.

A great voice was enjoyed by the audience lucky to hear her sing at the music concert Saturday night.

In June 2011, I was fortunate to be able to attend a Memorial Concert at Royal Albert Hall in London for John Barry who sadly passed away earlier that year. For me, it was yet another amazing and truly unforgettable performance by Dame Shirley!

Visit Shirley Bassey's official website for more information about the legendary singer.
