Dusty Springfield Tribute Shelley Eaglestone
Probably the most authentic lookalike and soundalike to the blue eyed Soul Diva Dusty Springfield. This Dusty tribute will take you back in time, without a doubt, with costumes reminiscent of the era! Singing all of Dusty’s greatest hits.
As a fan of US soul music, she brought many little-known soul singers to the attention of a wider UK record-buying audience by hosting the first national TV performance of many top-selling Motown artists beginning in 1965.
Partly owing to these efforts, a year later she eventually became the best-selling female singer in the world and topped a number of popularity polls, including Melody Maker’s Best International Vocalist.
Although she was never considered a Northern Soul artist in her own right, her efforts contributed a great deal to the formation of the genre as a result. She was the first UK singer to top the New Musical Express readers’ poll for Female Singer.
Springfield was raised in a music-loving family. Her father would tap out rhythms on the back of her hand and encourage her to guess the musical piece. She listened to a wide range of music, including George Gershwin, Rodgers and Hart, Rodgers and Hammerstein, Cole Porter, Count Basie, Duke Ellington and Glenn Miller. (Wikipedia)
