Rachael Roberts is a trained singer, actress and dancer, based in South Wales.
This fabulous Dame Shirley Bassey tribute act was born in the Vegas of the North, Blackpool and sang on stage for the first time at 3 years of age, delivering a rendition of Marie Osmond’s Paper Roses. A childhood in amateur theatre productions followed, culminating in a performance as Wartime Sweetheart, Vera Lynn, in The Theatre Royal, Hanley, for local VIPS and dignitaries at the age of 16.
A course at Performing Arts College followed and after she took part in many productions including Oklahoma, Godspell, West Side Story and Oliver before joining a female duo The Girls Next Door who toured the UK, Germany, Holland and Belgium, paying tribute to girl bands from the 40s through to the 2000s before leaving to work on their own solo projects.
As a solo singer, this fabulous tribute has performed in top hotels across Europe, on cruises and for illustrious private clients. She presented her own show, impersonating the voices of Judy Garland, Marilyn Monroe, Edith Piaf and Dame Shirley Bassey in a cabaret show that graced such venues in London as Café De Paris, Madame Jojo’s, The Pheasantry, Battersea Barge and Volupte. She also backed soul singer Clem Curtis and The Foundations at a show for Warners Hotels in Somerset and sang for charity fundraiser Kirsty Howard at her 15th birthday celebration at The Reebok Stadium.
This professional tribute has always adored Shirley Bassey and decided to present a tribute show that would pay homage to the amazing powerhouse voice, beautiful costumes, raw emotion and sassy wit of Wales’s number one female singer of all time. This talented artiste studied the younger Dame Bassey’s voice, facial expressions, movements, mannerisms and style and is a true impersonator that pays respectful tribute, rather than parody. She is also a lookalike who has wowed audiences with her uncanny resemblance to the young Dame.
With replica and authentic style costumes that are all bespoke made, she looks and sounds just like the real legend.
Quinn Artistes are incredibly proud to represent this outstanding entertainer on Carnival P&O Cruises.

I cannot believe how much she was like our great Dame. She sounded like, looked like her & moved like her too. If you are a fan of Bassey make sure you catch her the next time she is in this area. You will not be disappointed- Helen Enser Morgan, host of Swansea Sound.
