Dionne and Friends Artist Bio and Lyrics


Dionne and Friends was a one off ‘80s collaboration that featured Dionne Warwick alongside Stevie Wonder, Elton John, and Gladys Knight. They came together to re-record Warwick’s song “That’s What Friends Are For” as a charity song in the United Kingdom and the United States for AIDS research. It would raise millions of dollars for that cause.

Dionne and FriendsLyrics That's What Friends Are For

Warwick began singing gospel with her family, including parents Lee Drinkard and Mansel Warrick, at a young age in her home town of East Orange, New Jersey. She would eventually graduate from the University of Hartford and go on to a professional singing career.

She started off by singing back up vocals on records by artists such as Dinah Washington, Solomon Burke, and Chuck Jackson, among others. According to legend, the title of her first single, “Don’t Make Me Over,” came from a line Warwick snapped at her producers when she found out that the song she had wanted to record had been given to another singer. When her real name – Warrick – was misspelled on the single’s credits, she began using Warwick, the new spelling, in both her personal and professional life.

The albums of Dionne Warwick include Presenting Dionne Warwick, Make Way For Dionne Warwick, The Sensitive Sound of Dionne Warwick, Here I Am, Dionne Warwick In Paris, Here, Where There Is Love, Dionne Warwick Onstage and in the Movies, The Windows of the World, Magic of Believing, Promises, Promises, I’ll Never Fall In Love Again, Very Dionne, Dionne, From Within, Just Being Myself, Then Came You, Track of the Cat, A Man and a Woman, and How Many Times Can We Say Goodbye.
