Five-time Grammy winner Dionne Warwick will receive the 2017 Marian Anderson Award on November 14, 2017, during the eagerly anticipated Gala and Concert at The Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts. An internationally renowned pop music icon, Ms. Warwick’s career has spanned over 50 years. The Marian Anderson Award was created to celebrate critically acclaimed artists who have used their talents for personal artistic expression and/or whose body of work has contributed to our society in a positive and singular manner.
Ms. Warwick first displayed her talent as a child singing in her church in East Orange, NJ. In 1961, she was discovered by songwriting team Burt Bacharach and Hal David and has been astonishing crowds ever since with her masterful blend of pop, gospel and R&B music styles. To date, she has had 18 consecutive top 100 singles, 60 charted hit songs, and 20 best-selling albums. Ms. Warwick became the first African-American solo artist of her generation to win the highly-esteemed Best Contemporary Female Vocalist Performance award, and her recorded performances have been honored with five Grammy Awards. Having more than 100 million records sold, Ms. Warwick is a cornerstone of the American music industry.
