For most of the last half of the last century, she ranked among the 40 biggest hit-song makers in the world.
Dionne Warwick, one of the most-charted female vocalists of all time, turns 80 Saturday. She is also an actress, television host, and former Goodwill Ambassador for the Food and Agriculture Organization.
56 of her singles made the Billboard Hot 100 between 1962 and 1998 and 80 singles in total — either solo or collaboratively — made the Hot 100, R&B and/or adult contemporary charts.
She plans to celebrate her birthday with her annual holiday concert (this year online) that doubles as a fund raiser.
Proceeds from the concert are pledged to an organization called “Hunger Not Possible,” which feeds those in need.
