The legendary singer ignites the Gold Coast with her star power
Dionne Warwick should be lauded and applauded for contributing to the world’s best mix of R & B-Pop-Soul hits during the last fifty years. And now the Grammy award-winning music legend will be performing at The Star Gold Coast on 9 November.
Ms Warwick’s divine gospel-trained voice was discovered by and partnered with one of the twentieth century’s biggest songwriting teams in Burt Bacharach (Music) and Hal David (Lyrics). From 1961 through to the 1980s their hit songs shone through the top 100 music charts and embedded themselves in pop culture. ‘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 ‘Wishin’ and Hopin’ were just a few of the musical gems produced by this powerhouse trio.
Bacharach and David wrote for other singers, however, it was with Dionne Warwick that their music went mainstream, as she infused their miraculous pop melodies with her own signature R&B Soul.
Dionne’s effortless style has earned her a place in the history of music, second to Aretha Franklin as the most-charted female vocalist of all time.
With sold out September concerts in Dublin and Hamburg, ‘An evening with Dionne Warwick’ will be the fifth and last show of her tour in Australia performed at The Star Gold Coast, Friday 9 November. Tickets available here.
