It’s Dionne Warwick Burday Today!
Marie Dionne Warwick is a singer, actress, and TV host. She is credited as one the 40 biggest hit makers of the rock era(1958-2012). Auntie Dionne is second only to Aretha Franklin, as the most charted female vocalist of all time with 50 singles making the Billboard Hot 100 from 1962-1998. Warwick is the cousin of the late great Whitney Houston. She has a career than spans decades.
Warwick was recently honored at this year’s Soul Train Awards, with the Icon Award, which she is more than deserving of. Auntie Dionne is said to be working on a duets album that features Stevie Wonder, Alicia Keys, Ne-Yo, Cee Lo Green and Ziggy Marley. The album is said to have 10 tracks of new material as well as covers of classic hits. I am interested to hear this album. Auntie Dionne definitely is reinventing herself and staying relevant in the ever changing music industry.
Happy Burfday Auntie Dionne!
