Dame Shirley attended the 62nd Red Cross Ball in Monaco on 30th July 2010. It was held at the Sporting Monte-Carlo in the presence of HSH Prince Albert. It is an event that Dame Shirley usually attends. The entertainment was provided by Sir Tom Jones.
Dame Shirley looked stunning in a red gown. She was completely relaxed and looked very happy.
This week I’m playing another song request for Teigan. This time an early song and often forgotten about – Shirley’s recording of Can’t Help Lovin’ Dat Man – one of Shirley’s first recordings for the Columbia record label – taken from the Showboat musical.
For this week’s Astrid’s Simply Bassey I’m responding to a lovely message from Ewald.
“For all her fans and those who are not but will become fans let us hear one of her great interpretations of “And I love You So”. For me great and sweet memory for others a tip to learn how great Dame Shirley’s talent is. Whatever she undertakes there’s always that little IT that makes it her song.”
I hope you enjoy the versions I have chosen for you today Ewald and thanks for your message.
