The Express: Arms aloft to her adoring crowd, Dame Shirley Bassey thrilled fans at a charity gala on Wednesday (11th Feb). A shimmering star at the gala. Looking elegant in a floor-length bronze evening gown the veteran singer, 78, was a special guest at the 2015 amfAR event at Cipriani Wall Street in New York to raise money for research into HIV/Aids.
The New York Times: The event, which serves as an unofficial kick-off to New York Fashion Week, raised $2.25 million for AIDS research and included an auction and a four-song performance by Shirley Bassey who took to the stage just after 10pm.

Today the third 1976 BBC show. At the beginning of this show Shirley complains that her dog Emma is getting all the fanmail and she is getting none.
The last of this series of 6 shows was nominated in 1977 for the Rose of Montreux and in the brochure that was made for that was also an item about Emma that you can see below.
