There was re­ally no way any­one was ever go­ing to make over Dionne War­wick. She’s been her own woman since the beginning of her ca­reer— which kicked off with the pop hit “Don’t Make Me Over” in the early ’ 60s. Since then she’s racked up an im­pres­sive num­ber of hits, in­clud­ing “Walk on By,” the theme song to the movie Al­fie, “Do You Know The­Way to San Jose?” (which net­ted War­wick her first Grammy), and “Trains and Boats and Planes.” A few years ago, she re­leased the Christ­mas al­bum, My Fa­vorite Time of Year, but whether she will per­form any hol­i­day tunes when she takes the stage of the Len­sic Per­form­ing Arts Cen­ter at 7:30 p.m. on Sun­day, Dec. 27, is an­other mat­ter. The Santa Fe Con­cert As­so­ci­a­tion hosts the per­for­mance, which, ac­cord­ing toWar­wick’sWeb site, comes less than a week af­ter a cou­ple of ap­pear­ances in Bangkok and be­fore she heads off to Detroit for an­other con­cert. Busy woman. As for her hu­man­i­tar­ian ef­forts, War­wick teamed up with friends Gla­dys Knight, El­ton John, and Ste­vieWon­der to record “That’s What Friends Are For” as a fundraiser for AIDS re­search and served as global am­bas­sador for the Food and Agri­cul­ture Or­ga­ni­za­tion of the United Na­tions. Tick­ets are $28 to $84 with stu­dent dis­counts avail­able; call 988-1234.
