Dame Shirley Bassey also backs Amy Winehouse to sing Bond 22 theme
Earlier in the week, James Bond composer David Arnold was reported to be backing singer Amy Winehouse to perform the theme to the 22nd film in the series due out on 7th November 2008.
Now the legendary 007-diva Dame Shirley Bassey has added her name to the list of Winehouse supporters - reports ContactMusic
Bassey, who has sung the title song for a record three James Bond movies - Goldfinger, Diamonds Are Forever and Moonraker - is reportedly urging the film bosses to hire the "Rehab" hitmaker for the next spy-franchise installment.
The 70-year-old says, "There aren't many female artists of her generation with such an unusual sound. I can't think of anybody better to sing the Bond theme tune."
