Happy Birthday to Dionne Warwick, who celebrates her 73rd birthday today (December 12th). Warwick recently received a Grammy nom in the Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album category for her Now collection. USA Today reported this week that Warwick will release a new duets album, called Feels So Good in May. Among the special guests singing on the set are Stevie Wonder, Alicia Keys, Ne-Yo, Cee Lo Green, and Ziggy Marley. Feels So Good will feature ”new songs and covers of classic hits.”
In 2011 Warwick wrote her autobiography called, My Life As I See It, which was co-written by David Freedman Wooley and published by Simon & Schuster. Warwick’s maternal aunt is legendary gospel singer Cissy Houston – the mother of the late Whitney Houston.
Warwick will always be best known for her classic 1960′s hits written by Burt Bacharach and Hal David, including “Don’t Make Me Over,” “Anyone Who Had a Heart,” “Walk On By”, “Alfie,” “I Say A Little Prayer,” “(Theme From) The Valley Of The Dolls,” “Do You Know The Way To San Jose,” “I’ll Never Fall In Love Again,” and many others.
