Happy Birthday Dame Shirley Bassey !!

Dame Shirley Bassey held her belated 70th birthday party in England last night at the Clivedon Hotel. The Capricorn actually turned 70 this past January 8th. Dame Shirley Veronica Bassey, is a Welsh singer, perhaps best-known for performing the theme songs to the James Bond films Goldfinger (1964), Diamonds Are Forever (1971), and Moonraker (1979). She is the only singer to have recorded more than one James Bond theme song. She has sold around 135 million records in her 55 years as a recording artist and has a new album out called "Get the Party Started."
Watch this vintage clip of Dame performing "Diamonds are Forever." Pure classic.
