p_basseys.jpgAccording to the Internet source given below, Shirley Veronica Bassey is a Welsh singer born in Cardiff.
Her career started as a teenager in 1953 and by 1959 she became the first Welsh person to gain a number-one single on the UK Singles Chart. In 1956, her manager Michael Sullivan commissioned Ross Parker to write a song for the then 19-year-old Bassey. Parker wrote Burn My Candle, which later became Bassey's first controversial recording.
She became well-known for recording the soundtrack theme songs of the James Bond films Goldfinger (1964), Diamonds Are Forever (1971), and Moonraker (1979).
She was appointed a Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire (DBE) by Queen Elizabeth II for services to the performing arts in 1999.
