Best known for her signature hits “Walk on By,” “Do You Know the Way to San Jose,” “I Say a Little Prayer,” “I’ll Never Love This Way Again,” “Heartbreaker,” and “That’s What Friends Are For,” Warwick can only be described as a legend in the world of popular music.
The five-time Grammy Award winner has released over 65 hit singles and has sold more than 100 million records, making her the second most-charted female singer of all time, behind only Aretha Franklin.
A huge success off the stage as well, Warwick has supported and campaigned for many causes and charities close to her heart, including AIDS, the Starlight Children’s Foundation, children’s hospitals, world hunger, disaster relief, and music education. She served as Global Ambassador for Health and Ambassador for the United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO).
A New Jersey school – the Dionne Warwick Institute – was named in her honor in recognition of her accomplishments and support of education. Warwick was also a key participating artist in the all-star charity single, “We Are the World” and performed at Live Aid in 1984.
