Happy birthday Dame Shirley!

Dear viewers: as you probably all know today is Dame Shirley’s birthday and on behalf of the Blog team I want to wish her a very happy birthday.
I thought it would be nice if the viewers would write a personal note through the comments for Dame Shirley to wish her a happy birthday. So please, don’t hesitate in case you want to send her your own personal message.
In the archives I found this funny horoscope from 37 years ago. I don’t know how much of it became true for her but she was already voted most exciting singer on TV.  I hope you enjoy reading it.

  9. Dear Dame Shirley,

    I have always been thrilled, delighted, and moved by the sound of your powerful, emotional, and unbelievable expressive voice. Youtube videos and TV appearances have been the only way I’ve been able to see you perform as I’ve never had the privilege of seeing you live. However, I can truly say that you are one of the greatest singers and performers I’ve ever seen. We have been blessed to have you in our lives and as a tremendous part of our culture!

    From, one Lady Capricorn to another, have a wonderful, fantastic birthday, surrounded by those you love and who love you.

    I can only pray that one day you’ll come back to L.A. or Las Vegas to perform!

    Much Love,
    Hope (from Los Angeles, CA.)

  11. Dear Dame Shirley,

    I have been smitten with you since I first heard you in an impromptu & stunning performance one evening in Beirut.

    I am not going to wish you happy birthday just for this year because with your voice and style it is a permanent birthday which means you never age.

    With enormous affection & love from our family in OZ. xo
