    By The CBn Team on 2003-11-14

    Shirley Bassey, the lady who brought us the title song to Goldfinger was recently given a special award for Outstanding Contribution to Music, at the National Music Awards in the UK.

    As “Diamonds Are Forever” played, a film clip highlighting Bassey’s fifty years in the music industry was shown, followed by the presentation of her award by Simon Cowell of Pop Idol and American Idol fame.

    In true Shirley Bassey fashion, she closed the awards programme with a performance of “Goldfinger”.

    Thanks to Stuart Donaldson for bringing this to our attention.
