Roger Moore - Where Does Love Go?

19. February 2014 15:18 by m | 0 Comments

The article is about singer Shirley Bassey. In it we learn that she was reportedly discovered by director Jack Hylton for his musical "Such Is Life", she used to work in Cardiff, Wales for as little as five dollars, and that British television has made a documentary on her life. It states that her first song was a hit even though it was banned due to objectionable content and that during her childhood she was shy but gradually became outspoken.
