The Legacy Continues with Grammy Legend, Dionne Warwick, who’s celebrating her seventh decade in entertainment. From the works produced/written by Burt Bacharach/Hal David to the recently aired CNN documentary, “Dionne Warwick: Don’t Make Me Over”, Ms. Warwick (born Marie Dionne Warrick) is a trailblazer in music, the performing arts, Civil Rights and her humanitarian efforts. She scored a number one pop hit when she teamed with the Spinners for “Then Came You” (1974) and achieved another Top Ten single with “I’ll Never Love This Way Again” (1979), produced by Barry Manilow. The next decade, aided again by Bacharach, Warwick delivered her biggest hit of all, “That’s What Friends Are For” (1985), a smash that topped the pop, R&B, and adult contemporary charts.. A five-time Grammy-winner, Warwick was handed a Lifetime Achievement Award in 2019, and she has continued recording into the 2020s.
