In one of the most extraordinary examples of staying power the music industry has ever known, five-time Grammy Award-winning music legend, Dionne Warwick continues to regale audiences internationally. 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.
Once teamed with renowned songwriters, Burt Bacharach and Hal David, her first major release in 1962, "Don't Make Me Over", kicked off 18 more consecutive Top 100 singles. A few of her chart-toppers include, "Walk on By," "Anyone Who Had a Heart," "Message to Michael," "Promises Promises," "A House is Not a Home," "Alfie," "Say a Little Prayer," and "I'll Never Fall in Love Again."
After 30 hits, and close to 20 best-selling albums, she received her first Grammy Award in 1968 for, "Do You Know the Way to San Jose?" and in a trailblazing moment, she performed before the Queen of England at a Royal Command Performance. Her second Grammy followed in 1970 for the best- selling album, "I'll Never Fall in Love Again," with Warwick then becoming the first African-American solo female artist of her generation to win the prestigious award for Best Contemporary Female Vocalist Performance.
Other songs such as the theme from "Valley of the Dolls," made her a pioneering female artist in popularizing classic movie themes. Throughout the 70's, she began a fresh decade of honors such as the Hasty Pudding People's Choice Award for Favorite Female Singer, and she released new hits with Warner Bros. Records. There she recorded half a dozen albums, landing at the top of the charts with "Then Came You," a million-selling duet with The Spinners in 1974.
By 1976, after a label switch to Arista Records, she entered her third decade of hit- making with a Platinum-selling album, "Dionne," produced by Barry Manilow with its back-to-back hits "I'll Never Love This Way Again," and "Déjà vu.". Both recordings earned more Grammy Awards, setting her up as the first female artist to win for the Best Female Pop and Best Female R&B Performance. Having received 13 nominations alongside her five wins, three of her hits "Alfie," "Don't Make Me Over," and "Walk On By," are now inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame.
The 1980's didn't slow down her success as she climbed to the top of international charts with her 1982 album, "Heartbreaker,"
Warwick's musical influence has reached into multiple genres. With an album of duets, "My Friends & Me," a critically acclaimed Gospel album, "Why We Sing," and a jazz album, "Only Trust Your Heart" —a collection of standards, celebrating the music of legendary composer Sammy Cahn.
Her 2011 EP, "Only Trust Your Heart" launched another prolific period of recording and touring, with the powerhouse at once picking up a slew of new of awards. Starting in 2012 with the Golden Camera for Lifetime Achievement - Music International and the Glamour Woman of The Year Award.
