Dame Shirley Veronica Bassey, (born January 8, 1937), 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 now resides in Monaco, and has recently sold her London apartment. Many of its furnishings were auctioned for charity. Two very popular 'Audiences With Shirley Bassey' have aired on British TV, the most recent being in March 2006.
