Nicholas Snow is live with PromoHomo.TV® as Dionne Warwick, Grammy Award winning music legend, is honored with the 447th star on the City’s world-famous Walk of the Stars Palm Springs. The Star Dedication is organized and presented by the Palm Springs Chamber of Commerce.
Warwick started her career in 1961 after being discovered by the legendary songwriting team, Burt Bacharach and Hal David, and the team went on to record 30 hit singles and 20 best-selling albums during their first decade together. Their first record, “Don’t Make Me Over,” was followed by “Walk on By,” “Anyone Who Had a Heart,” “Message to Michael,” “Promises Promises,” “A House is Not a Home,” “Alfie,” “Say a Little Prayer,” “This Girl’s in Love With You,” “I’ll Never Fall in Love Again” and “Reach Out For Me,” among others.
She received her first Grammy in 1968 for her mega-hit, “Do You Know the Way to San Jose?,” becoming the first African-American solo female artist of her generation to win the prestigious award for Best Contemporary Female Vocalist Performance. She kicked off the ‘70s by earning her second Grammy for the best-selling album, “I’ll Never Fall In Love Again,” and later topped the charts with The Spinners on their hit, “Then Came You.” In the ‘70s and ‘80s, she made music with Barry Manilow (“Deja Vu”), The Bee Gees (“Heartbreaker”) and others as she continued racking up more and more Platinum-selling albums. In 1985, she reunited with composer Bacharach and longtime friends Gladys Knight, Elton John and Stevie Wonder to record “That’s What Friends Are For,” an international #1 record benefiting the AIDS charity, AMFAR.
In 2006, she recorded an album of duets, “My Friends & Me,” followed by 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. In 2013, she released “Now” produced by Phil Ramone, which was nominated for Traditional Pop Vocal Album at the 2014 Grammy Awards. Most recently, she released a much-anticipated star-studded duets album titled “Feels So Good,” featuring collaborations with some of today’s greatest artists including Alicia Keys, Jamie Foxx, Ne-Yo and others. Warwick is also a best-selling author and supports countless nonprofits.
