Grammy-winning artist Dionne Warwick has achieved legendary status worldwide with an unparalleled string of hits from the 1960s through the 1980s that remain popular among audiences of all ages today. Beginning with her debut single, "Don't Make Me Over," Dionne became a pop-soul powerhouse, demonstrating a remarkable range of emotions with dozens of further song standards written and produced by Burt Bacharach and Hal David such as "Walk On By,” "I Say A Little Prayer" and "I'll Never Fall In Love Again." She enjoyed a renaissance a decade later and continues to perform the world over.
"Dionne Warwick: Then Came You (My Music)" traces the singer's musical roots in the church, where she sang as a teen in a gospel group. She became a background singer performing with many classic R&B artists, leading to her discovery by Burt Bacharach and Hal David, who would go on to form a famously successful three-way musical marriage with Warwick.
"Dionne Warwick: Then Came You (My Music)" presents for the first time, rare, full-length archival performances of the Warwick-Bacharach-David 1960s favorites, as well as Warwick's smash hits from the 1970s and 1980s, including "Then Came You" (with The Spinners), "I'll Never Love This Way Again," "Heartbreaker" and "That's What Friends Are For" (with Stevie Wonder, Gladys Knight and Elton John).
