Shirley Bassey is celebrating her 83rd birthday today. As a number of online tributes attest, she is one of the most acclaimed singers of her generation.

Popular singer Shirley Bassey (Diamonds Are Forever, Goldfinger, ...) has always liked to keep a bit of herself hidden from view. At 83rd birthday, she remains a woman of many facets.

Bassey, a cultural icon

Born Dame Shirley Veronica Bassey in Cardiff on January 8, 1937, her career spans an arc over many different eras and tastes in Welsh history. Bassey's not just a great singer, she's an inspiration, an icon and a successful business woman. At this point in her career, there seems to be little Shirley hasn't done.

And we've got a feeling the next 12 months are going to be even bigger and better for Shirley Bassey as she promises more to come. After all, she's only 83.

Happy Birthday, Shirley, you're the best!
