Dionne Warwick Information Continued
Dionne Warwick weathered the British Invasion better than most American artists, and she released only a few minor hits in the UK during the late 1960s, most notably 1966's "Message to Michael". A 1967 LP called Here Where There Is Love became a big hit, as did her single "I Say a Little Prayer", which is now very famous for being featured in the recent movie, My Best Friend's Wedding. In addition, her 1960s recording of "Wives and Lovers" was used as the theme song for the 1996 hit movie First Wive's Club. Dionne Warwick's next big hit was unusual in that it was not written by Burt Bacharach and Hal David; "(Theme From) Valley of the Dolls" was a smash success, as was the follow-up, "Do You Know the Way to San José?". More hits and a few Grammies followed in the last two years of the 1960s. Dionne Warwick's career slowed greatly in the 1970s, with no big hits until 1974's "Then Came You" with the Spinners. In the early 70's at the advice of a numerologist, both Dionne Warwick and her sister DeeDee added an 'e' to the end of Warwicke (later dropped). A five-year hiatus ensued, ending with "I'll Never Love This Way Again," produced by Barry Manilow. The accompanying album, Dionne, was her first to go platinum.
Dionne Warwick's next hit was her 1982 full-length collaboration with the Bee Gees, Heartbreaker. In 1986, Dionne Warwick led the American Foundation for AIDS Research (AmFAR) benefit single "That's What Friends Are For" with Gladys Knight, Elton John and Stevie Wonder; it was a number one hit, and garnered Dionne Warwick's fifth Grammy.
