New Year’s Eve


1996 F

For this New Year’s Eve we have this fabulous performance from New Year’s Eve 1996 by Dame Shirley for German TV. I hope you enjoy this performance and I would like say a special thank you to: Andre, Audrey, Carl, Jill, Rien and Susan for all their help with the blog this year.

This performance was recorded at the beginning of December shortly after Shirley recorded her 60th. birthday special for the BBC. The recordings for the show took place in the Dutch Endemol studios in Aalsmeer for the German TV station SAT 1.

Dame Shirley sang three songs: two from her album ‘The show must go on’ and ‘I am what I am’.

From ‘The show must go on’ she sings: ‘Can I touch you there’ and ‘He kills everything’ which was the theme song for a German TV-series called ‘The gang’.
