Saturday Night Video: The great Dame Shirley Bassey celebrating 70+ years in music
Dame Shirley Bassey celebrated 70 years in the business in 2020 with her latest album, ‘I Owe It All To You’. Shirley started singing as a young teenager back in 1950 performing at Men’s clubs at the Docs of Tiger Bay Wales, but only on Sunday’s. This was the only day the wives could attend. Shirley received her first professional contract to join musical reviews only three years later in 1953. She started as a chorus girl, but as soon as the producers discovered Shirley could sing, she was brought up front. Shortly after this Shirley gave up her dancing shoes. In 1956, Shirley received her first recording contract, and within the next two years she would receive her first number one single. This clip includes two wonderful songs that say everything about this lady and her music, and a multitude of pictures cover both her personal life and her amazing career in show business.
