Shirley Bassey net worth: Shirley Bassey is a Welsh singer who has a net worth of $10 million dollars. Born in Tiger Bay, Cardiff, Wales, Shirley Bassey always had a glorious singing voice, but was not encouraged by her teachers or peers, who often told her to be quiet. She began working at a factory when she was 14, and performed in nightclubs at night. She appeared in two touring musical productions in the early 50s, but at age 16, she stepped away from performance to give birth to her first child. In 1955, after catching the eye of Michael Sullivan, an agent, she began performing again. He began booking her at various venues, which led to an offer to appear in the musical, "Such Is Life" in the West End. She was offered a recording deal based on her work in the musical, and her first single was a moderate hit. In 1957, she had her first single reach the Top Ten on the charts, and since then, she has enjoyed a very steady career. Most recently, she performed her massively successful track, "Goldfinger" at the 2013 Oscars, to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the James Bond franchise.
Dame Shirley Veronica Bassey, DBE (born 8 January 1937) is a Welsh singer. She found fame in the mid-1950s and has been called "one of the most popular female vocalists in Britain during the last half of the 20th century". In the US, in particular, she is best known for recording the theme songs to the James Bond films Goldfinger (1964), Diamonds Are Forever (1971), and Moonraker (1979).
Shirley Veronica Bassey was the sixth and last child of Eliza Jane Start and Henry Bassey in Tiger Bay, Cardiff, Wales (now called Cardiff Bay), of paternal Nigerian and maternal English descent. Bassey's mother also had four children from previous relationships, two of whom lived in the Bassey household. Eliza had been married previously, to Alfred Metcalfe, and upon her marriage to Bassey, Eliza Jane Metcalfe listed Alfred Metcalfe as her father on the marriage registry. It has thus been theorized that she never divorced Alfred, and that her marriage to Bassey was bigamous. Eliza and Henry's second child died in infancy, so Shirley was born into a household of three sisters, two half-sisters, and one brother.
As a preteen attending Moorland Road School, Bassey's strong voice was noticed by teachers and students alike, though without encouragement: "...everyone told me to shut up. Even in the school choir the teacher kept telling me to back off till I was singing in the corridor! [A classmate] recalled her singing 'Can't help lovin' that man of mine' from Show Boat with such feeling that she made [their] teacher uncomfortable." After leaving Splott Secondary Modern School at the age of 14, Bassey first found employment packing at a local factory while singing in local public houses and clubs in the evenings and weekends.
In 1953, Bassey signed her first professional contract, to sing in a touring variety show Memories of Jolson, a musical based on the life of Al Jolson. She next took up a professional engagement in Hot from Harlem, which ran until 1954. By this time Bassey
