Legendary soul and R&B singer Dionne Warwick will perform on May 19 at the Menorah Mivtachim Arena in Tel Aviv. The 74-year-old Warwick is best known for popularizing the Burt Bacharach-Hal David songbook, creating huge hits in the late 1960s with songs like "Walk On By," "Do You Know the Way to San Jose?" and "I'll Say a Little Prayer."
The cousin of the late Whitney Houston, Warwick continued a thriving career through the decades, including scoring a number one hit in 1985 with "That's What Friends Are For," a collaboration with Stevie Wonder, Elton John and Gladys Knight.
In 2013, Warwick made headlines when she declared bankruptcy, with more than more than $10 million in unpaid taxes. On the rebound, she released an album that year, Feels So Good, in which she picked up Tony Bennett's lead and recorded duets with a slew of younger artists, including CeeLo Green, Ziggy Marley and Ne-Yo.
Tickets for the Tel Aviv show range from NIS 199 to NIS 1,000 and are available through www.leaan.co.il
