The Incomparable Dionne Warwick
Dionne Warwick! Her musical grace, passion, power & precision have been essential to the world’s soundtrack for 60+ years & running, as she enjoys her newly released single, Power In The Name. From the early 1960’s on, her iconic sound set the bar in American pop music by earning more than 60 charted hit songs and selling over 100 million records. The legendary singer got her start in family groups the Drinkard Singers and the Gospelaires. She was singing backup at a session in 1962, when the song’s composer, Burt Bacharach, approached her, marking the start of one of the most fruitful triangular musical-marriages of all time. Bacharach and the lyricist Hal David composed a glorious series of varied and genre-defying masterpieces tailored to Warwick’s exquisite vocal delivery.
