1. Shirley Bassey Sings For AIDs Benefit

    By David Winter on 2001-05-20

    Shirley Bassey has performed two James Bond Theme Songs in a bid to raise money for the American Foundation for AIDS Research.

    Elizabeth Taylor, who hosted the evening, payed $100,000 for Bassey to perform the song which she is known best for, “Goldfinger”.

    Later in the evening Bassey performed “Diamonds Are Forever” to promote the sale of 12 diamond necklaces on display at the benefit. The jewels, worth $25 million, will go on sale at New York’s Sotheby’s auction house in June.

    Just shows how Bond can help to save the world in many different ways…
