This year of 2020 held many great moments for the legendary Lifetime Achievement Grammy Award winner Dionne Warwick – her appearance on Fox TV’s The Masked Singer as well as dropping by the Verzus online special with Gladys Knight and Patti Labelle being two examples.
On Saturday, Dec. 12 2020, at 7 p.m. EST/4 p.m. Pacific time, Ms. Warwick will be hosting a dual live online event as she celebrates the holiday season and a milestone – her 80th birthday. “For years, I’d hold a Christmas and birthday dinner at my home,” she explained in a recent interview. “But since we can’t do that this time around due to the pandemic, we’ll be bringing the party to fans as a live stream event. I want to show folks that I’m still here and kicking!”
On the heels of her album, The Voices of Christmas, Ms. Warwick will be joined by many guests who participated in the holiday recording – Johnny Mathis, the Oak Ridge Boys w/John Rich, Billy Ray Cyrus and Aloe Blacc, to name a few. In addition, entertainers and celebrities from around the world will send birthday and Christmas greetings.
Portions of the proceeds from the live stream event will benefit Hunger Not Impossible – a text-based service that connects kids and families in need with prepaid, nutritious, to-go meals from nearby restaurants. “Every year, there are families that cannot afford to even buy basic foods for their children – and it’s worse near the holiday season,” Ms. Warwick stated, “With this event, we’ll be able to help this wonderful organization with its efforts to feed folks.”
