Prize winner Dionne Warwick - Category "Musical Lifetime Achievement"

In 2011 Dionne Warwick celebrated her 50th year in the music business. Her renderings of Burt Bacharach and Hal David hits like "That’s What Friends Are For" and "I Say a Little Prayer" brought her widespread fame. Her biggest hit was "Heartbreaker" by Barry Gibb.

In total, she has landed more than 60 top-100 hits, sold over 100 million records, and received countless nominations and awards, including being the first Afro-American to receive the Grammy Award after Ella Fitzgerald.

"Dionne Warwick is a living legend, a pioneer in her genre. Her songs will live on to delight generations to come," says HÖRZU.

The soul diva personally accepted the trophy from Europe’s leading weekly program magazine HÖRZU at the gala event on February 4, 2012.
