Spend the evening with Dionne Warwick as part of the PaleyLive Summer 2018 Season on August 1, 2018. It will be a magical evening to celebrate the new PBS Special of the multi-Grammy winning artist who’s career spans over five decades. The documentary will highlight her career in the music industry including tributes from friends like Gladys Knight, Barry Manilow, Smokey Robinson, and her main songwriter Burt Bacharach. Attendees will be able to see the of the new PBS Special with the premier and than enjoy a Q&A with Ms. Warwick by Larry King. Attendees will also enjoy clips from the Paley Archive that will illuminate the conversation where she’ll share anecdotes from her successful career.
