Synopsis

Album Description
As soulful as she is sophisticated in her distinctive vocal stylings, five-time GRAMMY®-winning superstar Dionne Warwick is a globally beloved music icon and humanitarian. Warwick first climbed the charts in 1962 with her debut hit single, "Don't Make Me Over," penned by Burt Bacharach and Hal David-she emerged as the foremost interpreter of their compositions, and remains so. Over the course of an illustrious, hit-filled career that's endured more than 45 years and spans five decades, Warwick has also become a true contemporary music legend. With the inspirational WHY WE SING, she builds on her legacy with a new studio album, following up a duets collection and her first-ever holiday music release. It will, no doubt, also remind us why we love Dionne Warwick.

A Return to Greatness

"Why We SingAs a lifetime fan and listener of Dionne Warwick recordings, I am qualified to make this statement. Her current release, "Why We Sing", is her best original content CD of the last 20 years. It's as good a work as anything from her musical heyday in the 1960's. Every song selection is top notch allowing Dionne's vocal gifts to shine and soar as the recording star that she is!
The songs transition divinely between various tempos and moods building upon each other till the grand finale. Dionne's patented brand of vocal seductress translates with great success to her approach to Gospel. The selected material sounds as if it were written just with her in mind to interrupt.
The title song is simply a standout as it is performed in harmony with her sister, Dee Dee. Anyone who's ever enjoyed a stirring Dionne performance or has a love of Gospel music should consider adding this to your collection. I'm sure you'll discover the love and sensitivity of a powerful vocalist singing praises."
Rise, Shine and Give Dionne the Glory!

"Dionne Warwick is a true visionary when it comes to music. She can interpret lyrics like no other. Her ability to convey emotion through song is unparralled. In an age of shallow and uninspired music, we have this gem known as "Why We Sing". This wonderful return to greatness, for one of the most talented female vocalists of all time, is a joy to listen to. The music is soulful, uplifting and passionate. If you are a fan of great music or are just tired of the same old thing, do yourself a favor and discover one of the best albums Dionne Warwick has ever recorded."
