Re: New Version of What the World Needs Now by Dionne Warwick

Here is Dionne singing this live this month, over the backing track from the 15-year-old recording. Including some oddly placed backing vocals! Still, I have to say she can still sing it well in this key (a little higher than the one in her concerts) and it sounds a lot better. https://www.youtube.c...

Re: Put Your Youtube.com Links Here! (if you want)

Dionne has been performing a few songs she hasn't done for quite some time and she's sounding great at nearly 79. Here are a few clips for anyone interested: Always Something There To Remind Me: https://www.facebook.com/didi.herrenberg.7/videos/2265412473740328/?t=325 Don't Make Me Over, Walk on By,...

Re: Put Your Youtube.com Links Here! (if you want)

Dionne singing I Say A Little Prayer in it's original arrangement at the Carnegie Hall in February (though in a lower key of course) - her voice seems to be getting better and better again:

Re: Put Your Youtube.com Links Here! (if you want)

A few unusual occurences in this concert from Dionne Warwick. She has a much more comprehensive band than is usual - not her own, but Rob Shrock does appear to be on piano and conducting. She performs the full length version of Walk on By, she performs Hasbrook Heights with Rumer, and also performs ...

Re: OT: Aretha feuding with Dionne

It's sad really, isn't it. I don't know that Dionne was trying to call out Aretha but even if she was it's not nice to drag this out in public. I suspect it was triggered by Dionne approaching Aretha more than anything else.

Re: Dionne Warwick - Honoring Clive Davis

Dionne is definitely enjoying a bit of a vocal Renaissance right now, and I love it! What do you think is going on? As much as I love her, I was ready to call for her retirement about 3 or 4 years ago, yet now she is kicking ass all over again! I'm not sure that "I'll Never Love This Way Again...

Dionne Warwick - Honoring Clive Davis

I just wanted to highlight for the Dionne fans on here that she performed two songs in honor of Clive Davis last night at Radio City Music Hall. The first ( here ) was I'll Never Love This Way Again - I think it's possibly the best rendition of the song I've heard her perform in the last 17 years, w...

Re: Dionne's Concert at Bethesda Blues and Jazz Club- March 1, 2017

It looks like I'm kind of talking to myself here, but I just thought I'd point out that someone uploaded her full concert from two nights after I saw her. It is an exact replica, except she was in even better voice here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QS82QEPlhnI. Enjoy! In this concert she sounds...

Re: Rare Dionne 1964 Concert Video! Don't Miss It!

Sorry for the double post, but here is a corrected version of the performance: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cc78ar5d7xY I reduced the speed of the playback by around 2% and that seems to have brought the pitch back to the original, or at least very very close to. It sounds the same as the origina...

Re: Rare Dionne 1964 Concert Video! Don't Miss It!

Funny story: my wife likes to say that Dionne's voice has always had an "old" (mature) quality to it, even when she was very young. I agree, to an extent. However, I rushed to show her this concert because I felt that Dionne has a decidedly "young" tone here, and she concurred. ...

Re: Rare Dionne 1964 Concert Video! Don't Miss It!

Wasn't her voice just so effortless and flexible back in the 60s! it's the first time I've heard This Empty Place performed live and it's as excellent as the rest of this set.

Re: Put Your Youtube.com Links Here! (if you want)

Not strictly Burt related, but I know there are some Dionne fans here. Here she is singing We Are The World with Jon Secada at the La Musa awards this time last year. She sounds great - in a higher key than the original recording too!

I'm sure he must be. As is always the case with these things, the information referred to by him is speculation and guesses based on limited information presented as irrefutable fact.

Re: Orlando

You must be insane to believe that nonsense. Dig a little deeper and you'll find any evidence of this type is produced by conspiracy theorists who twist snippets of fact and information to fit into their agenda. Much like some of the worse parts of the media, in fact - the media that they reject for...
