DAME SHIRLEY BASSEY COLLECTING THE FREEDOM OF HER HOME CITY OF CARDIFF

A very elegant looking Dame Shirley Bassey collected her award today wearing a patterned midi dress with a silver belt, a black blazer and heels.

Cardiff council Huw Thomas said Dame Shirley is undoubtedly one of Wales greatest exports with a career spanning over seven decades.

Dame Shirley looked thrilled as she was presented with the accolade by the Lord Mayor  of Cardiff during a special ceremony at Cardiff’s City Hall (Neuadd y Ddinas Caerdydd) 

Dame Shirley joins Winston Churchill, Nelson Mandela and Pope John Paul II in receiving the honour.

  1. That’s Mia Lloyd, 12 years old and the youngest ambassador of Noach Arc Charity, a real gem and hero if you ask me. She already raised a lot of money for the foundation, and still does, with her positive appearance and attitude!
    She was treated for a rare kind of cancer; lost half her left leg, but never lost her good spirit in this battle!

  2. I was rather disappointed in the dress that she wore, a bright suit would of been better. The lady sat next to DSB in the council chamber has been Shirley’s PA, for about 15 years, guess she accompanied DSB, as no boyfriend. The dress at the evening function, was good!

  3. I am so happy for our DSB. I was almost crying along with her when she was sitting in the City Hall Chamber. I love the conservative but we’ll made lovely dres She arrived in. She looked gorgeous in her beautiful evening gown from head to toe. I would love to have one of the beautiful portraits thar were auctioned. What a great milestone for the girl from Tiger Bay.

  5. Mi sapete dire cosa fa ora Dame Bassey, canta ancora ? In fondo lo potrebbe fare tanto lei ha talento e verve da vendere. Io penso che dovrebbe incidere una raccolta dei suoi più grandi successi e completarlo con canzoni cover di successi di altri da lei mai eseguiti. Sarebbe fantastico.fatemi sapere grazie

  6. She is beautiful and looked wonderful. Her physical condition is remarkable for her age and far better than her contemporaries — if she even has any left. I am so happy she is still able to receive and enjoy these accolades after over 60 years in showbusiness.
