With original music by Bill Jolly, this inspiring documentary portrait chronicles singer Dionne Warwick, the iconic artist behind timeless hits such as "What the World Needs Now," "Say A Little Prayer," and "Don’t Make Me Over."
What few people know is that behind the familiar and beloved songs is a strong woman whose fierce determination not only brought her worldwide success but also a voice she used to fight for humanitarian causes.
In an America divided between black and white, her music crossed pan-Atlantic barriers and exploded in Europe when her first album was released under the guise of a blonde-haired, blue-eyed white female artist. Since revealing her true identity, Dionne has achieved international superstardom, releasing pop hits over the course of six decades, while becoming a fearless voice for the AIDS crisis and a spokeswoman for social causes around the world.
