Shirley Bassey Tribute by Rachael Roberts
Rachael Roberts is a trained singer, actress and dancer, based in Cheshire.
After 4 years of performing in touring theatre shows (Godspell, Oklahoma, West Side Story, Songs That Won The War) she formed an all female band and toured Germany with a show that paid tribute to the great girlbands from the 40s through to the 00s.
After becoming a solo artist, shows in top hotels (Hilton, The Four Seasons, DeVere, Marriott, Hyatt, Mercure, Ramada, Crowne Plaza) for corporate and private clients followed and Rachael supported Clem Curtis and The Foundations at Warners Hotel in Somerset.
After paying tribute to her heroines Judy Garland, Edith Piaf, Marilyn Monroe, Doris Day, Bette Midler and Shirley Bassey, in a Little Voice style theatre show in various venues around London (Café De Paris, The Pheasantry, Madame Jojo’s, Volupte), Rachael decided to concentrate upon a dedicated tribute to Dame Shirley Bassey.
This is a stunning tribute to the magnificent girl from Tiger Bay, with all of the glamorourous costumes, the honeyed Welsh speaking voice and of course, the fabulous powerhouse vocal that Dame Shirley is so famous for.
Songs include Diamonds Are Forever, Kiss Me Honey Honey, Something, Get This Party Started, This Is My Life and of course, the showstopping Goldfinger.
After a short time singing jazz and soul (which included a support slot for Clem Curtis and The Foundations), It was suggested to her to begin a tribute to Shirley Bassey . Premiering at the famous Nantwich Jazz Festival, Rachael received rave reviews and featured on the front pages of many local newspapers along with headliners Cleo Lane and Tony Christie.
Now building upon this success, Rachael is taking her respectful, authentic and heartfelt tribute around the world.
