With hit singles like "Walk On By" and "Say A Little Prayer," Dionne Warwick emerged as one of the sultriest singers of the '60s, carving out a place between Motown soul and easy listening. She was the favored muse of Burt Bacharach in the '60s -- what more can you say? In terms of chart performance, Warwick ranks only behind Aretha Franklin among female artists. She is one of the great vocalists of her era, a hit-maker who turned it up to 11 in 1985 -- with the all-star single "That's What Friends Are For," which was hailed as the biggest song of 1986.
