Dionne's sister and collaborator dies in New Jersey
Dionne Warwick was with her sister when she died on Saturday morning at a nursing home in Essex County after a period of ill health.
After getting her start as a gospel singer, Dee Dee Warwick enjoyed a successful career as a soul singer in the 1960s with hits such as ‘She Didn’t Know (She Kept on Talking)’ and ‘Foolish Fool’.
She provided backing vocals to ‘My Music & Me’, a musical based on the life of her sister Dionne, and sang on her gospel album ‘Why We Sing’ which came out at the start of this year.
