Dame Shirley Bassey Heads Off to Cyprus

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

12 May 2017

Glamour, style and good music follow a rather long period of silence here at cyprusthrive. Dame Shirley Bassey heads off to Cyprus!

Giving voice to people living with HIV/AIDS in Cyprus and their families, L.C. Positive Voice organises a great fundraising event in Larnaca. After the mega success they had with a similar event featuring Justine Riddoch aka Totally Tina, UK’s no.1 tribute act to Tina Turner, the charitable organisation prepares another great tribute show dedicated to the one and only Shirley Bassey (Rachael Roberts).

Originally from Wales, Rachael Roberts is what you can call a one-woman show without risking a cliché. An artist in her own right, Rachael has an impressive singing, dancing and acting career, having performed in touring theatre shows such as Godspell, Oklahoma, West Side Story, Songs That Won the War, some of you may have heard about already. Enjoying the taste of success year after year, Rachel formed an all-female band and toured all around Germany with a mind-blowing tribute show to renowned girl bands from the 40s to the 00s.

That was only a ‘warm-up’ for Rachael as the road ahead was to be even more glamorous as a solo artist. Over the years she performed for corporate and private clients in top hotels around the world like The Hilton, Marriott, Hyatt, Mercure, Ramada, and Crowne Plaza. She also supported Clem Curtis and The Foundations at Warners Hotel in Somerset.

After flirting with showbiz and enjoying the fame of her idols Judy Garland, Edith Piaf, Marilyn Monroe, Doris Day, Bette Midler, and Shirley Bassey, whom she emulated, performing in a Little Voice style theatre show in different venues across London, including the famous Café De Paris, The Pheasantry, Madame Jojo’s, and Volupte. Although she made a perfect show with each and every one of the tribute acts she was in, Dame Shirley Bassey finally won her over.

Directly from London’s West End, Rachael Roberts is coming to Zante Café Bar in Limassol, on Saturday, 12th August 2017, to support the efforts of L.C. Positive Voice.
