News today that Dame Shirley Bassey is in hospital recovering from emergency surgery after experiencing stomach pains. Details are sketchy, obviously, but there is no suggestion at present that the 71 year old singing legend will not recover quickly.
Shirley Bassey has been one of the UK’s best loved entertainers for the last half century with a string of hits and amassing sales topping 100 million records!! Her distinctive voice, coupled with an irreverent attitude in which she displays the ability to almost mock her own somewhat theatrical performance style has endeared her to audiences worldwide.
We wish her a speedy recovery to full health.
