Do you know the way to Santa Fe?
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.
