Dionne Warwick

Don’t Make Me Over

In person and in Her Own Words

Meet the real Dionne Warwick, the artist behind timeless hits such as What the World Needs Now, Say A Little Prayer, and Don’t Make Me Over. What few people know is that behind the iconic music is a strong woman whose fierce determination not only brought her worldwide success but also a voice she used to fight for humanitarian causes.

Join Dionne on stage and in person while she takes you on an unforgettable journey through her fascinating life story and one of the most successful music careers of our times.

Dionne is joined on stage by interviewer Dave Wooley who directed and wrote the award winning Don’t Make Me Over documentary, her band plus a multimedia set up with LED screen. 

Taking excerpts from the documentary, Dave will interview and guide Dionne while she recalls her life in her words.  Supported by documentary footage and contributions from the likes of President Bill Clinton, Elton John, Stevie Wonder, Barry Gibb and many more.   The evening will be interspersed with live performances of her many hits and acknowledgement of an unimpeachable catalogue of music.  

With humble beginnings as a gospel singer in New Jersey, Dionne Warwick started by winning Amateur Night at Harlem’s Apollo Theatre and went on to become the first African American to win the Grammy for Best Pop Vocal Performance with over 100 million records sold. Growing up in an America divided between black and white, her music crossed pan-Atlantic barriers and exploded in Europe when her first album was released under the guise of a blonde-haired, blue-eyed white female artist. Since revealing her true identity, the relentless Dionne has achieved international superstardom, churned out pop hits spanning decades and become a fearless voice for the AIDS crisis and a spokeswoman for social causes around the world.

“ I’m so thrilled to be coming back to the UK and bringing a brandnew show to my fans. I’ll be sharing stories & personal anecdotes from my life along with footage from my recent documentary, ‘Don’t Make Me Over.  And of course I’ll be singing some of my favourite songs from my career.” - Dionne Warwick
