Shirley Bassey - Electric Proms 2009

This is Dame Shirley Veronica Bassey , performing live with the BBC Concert Orchestra at the Electric Proms, Roundhouse London, England on the 23rd October 2009.

This has ensured that those who contribute tend to listen to music they might otherwise just pass by.
