Songs by the talented Dionne Warwick
American soul icon, Dionne Warwick will be performing again in Australia in November 2018.



I would term Dionne Warwick as a force to be reckoned with. This term is not generally used to describe a singer, however in this case, I feel her voice is so powerful and her hits so immense that she is a force to be reckoned with!

First off, she will be at the Perth Convention Centre's Riverside Theatre, where Dionne will enchant audiences with those lucky enough to see this performance. Dionne has won Grammy awards five-times during her career.

She has been singing for some 50 years now and will perform classics from her lengthy career of hits. She will play on Friday 2nd November 2018, from 8.00 pm and tickets are from $100 to $550 for a VIP package.

She will proceed to the rest of Australia after her Perth tour and then on to New Zealand.

Over the many years, she has been in the entertainment industry, Warwick has firmly entrenched herself as one of the world's best established and internationally renown singers.



She has an incredible range and can blend R&B, pop, gospel and soul music.

During this career, she has had no less than 75 hit singles and has sold a whopping 100 million records. She is renown throughout the world for her amazing vocals and foot-tapping melodies.

BIOGRAPHY OF DIONNE WARWICK
Dionne Warwick first started singing in 1961 after being discovered by songwriters Burt Bacharach and Hal David.



During the next ten or so years they put out almost 20 best selling albums. During this time she also released over 30 singles hits and who could forget these incredible tunes:

Walk on By
A House Is Not A Home
Say A Little Prayer For You

Her first Grammy was awarded to her in 1968 for that well-known song, Do You Know the Way to San Jose.



Her second Grammy was then achieved in 1970 for the best-selling album, I'll Never Fall In Love Again.

Dionne Warwick was actually the first African-American solo female artist to win the award for Best Contemporary Female Vocalist Performance. At the time she was known as the artist who bridged the gap. She can also lay claim to having been the first of her peers to have twelve consecutive Top 100 singles.

One of her greatest achievements was to be the first African-American to perform for the Queen of England.

Warwick's second decade of hit songs began in 1970 when she signed up with Warner Bros. Records. She recorded about six records with a number of producers. These included Thom Bell, Holland-Dozier-Holland, Jerry Ragavoy, Steve Barri and Michael Omartian. She then sang for Arista Records in 1976.

Her first platinum album was made together with producer Barry Manilow. This was the famous album Dionne, which turned into Grammy Award-winning singles, I'll Never Love This Way Again, and Déjà vu.

Then in 1982, she released the hit album, Heartbreaker which was co-produced by Barry Gibb and The Bee Gees. In 1985, she then reunited with composer Burt Bacharach and her good friends, Gladys Knight, Elton John and Stevie Wonder to record the landmark song That's What Friends Are For.

Once again Dionne released another album Now in 2013, and this was to celebrate 50 years in the entertainment industry. This was an album that featured previously unreleased songs written by songwriters Burt Bacharach and Hal David.

In 2014, we saw the release of her Feels So Good album, and this was a duets album featuring several greats including:

Alicia Keys
Jamie Foxx
Billy Ray Cyrus
Ne-Yo
Gladys Knight
Cee Lo Green
Cyndi Lauper
