Dionne Warwick Destined For UK Charity Performance 16th May 2013

One of the most successful female singer-songwriters of all time, Dionne Warwick, has today been revealed as the headline act at this year's Butterfly Ball, the flagship fundraising event for national charity, Caudwell Children.
 
Famed for hit songs including 'Walk On By', 'Do You Know The Way To San Jose' and 'Alfie', Warwick's winning partnership with Burt Bacharach and Hal David helped her become one of the World's greatest hit makers.
 
By headlining the glamorous event, Warwick will follow in the footsteps of music legends Tina Turner, Sir Elton John, Rod Stewart and her cousin, the late Whitney Houston; all of whom have appeared at the charity ball which raises money for disabled children.
 
The black-tie affair, which boasts a guest list of A-list stars and Royalty, will take place on Thursday 16thMay at Battersea Evolution in Battersea Park, London.
 
Commenting on the news, Mrs Warwick said: "It will be an honour to perform at such an auspicious event, especially one that raises so much money for disabled children."
 
Caudwell Children was founded in 2000 by the billionaire philanthropist, John Caudwell. Since that time the charity has helped thousands of disabled children and raised over £27million.  
 
Mrs Beswick, CEO of Caudwell Children, said: "Dionne Warwick is one of the true legends of music and it will be a delight to have her join the list of truly amazing performers to have performed at the Butterfly Ball."      
 
Celebrity guests expected to attend include Sir Elton John, Rachel Stevens, Sir Bruce Forsyth, Joan Collins and Peter Andre.
