Born and raised in the Oranges in New Jersey, Dionne Warwick found singing through her family, who were members of the legendary gospel group the Drinkard Singers. Singing in church and with her family inspired her to study music in college, where she started singing backup vocals on recordings. But after a fateful meeting with the composer Burt Bacharach and the lyricist Hal David, Warwick’s career took off, with songs like WALK ON BY, ALFIE, and I SAY A LITTLE PRAYER establishing her as one of pop music’s most beautiful interpreters of contemporary music. And that’s just the beginning of a story and career that spans decades. DIONNE WARWICK: DON’T MAKE ME OVER is a celebration of Warwick’s amazing life and work, spanning her incredible singing career to her pioneering advocacy for AIDS research to her recent arrival on Twitter and beyond. Montclair Film is proud to present DIONNE WARWICK: DON’T MAKE ME OVER as the Documentary Centerpiece of the 10th Annual Montclair Film Festival.
