PEEKSKILL - Legendary singer Dionne Warwick rocked a packed crowd at the Paramount Hudson Valley Theater in Peekskill this weekend.

The five-time Grammy winner made a rare appearance and gave her legion of loyal fans just want they wanted - an evening of nostalgia.

Warwick was named the number two female vocalist on the Billboard charts back in 1967 and nearly a half century later, she continues her reign as a musical powerhouse. She performed all her number 1 hits, from the Burt Bacharach days with songs like “Walk on By” to 1979's “I'll Never Love This Way Again,” to making every friendship last with “That's What Friends Are For” in 1982.

But it hasn't always been easy for Ms. Warwick, who is also the godmother of Whitney Houston. The New Jersey resident filed for bankruptcy back in 2013 citing $10 million in back taxes. However that hasn't stopped her from still delighting audiences with that unmistakable voice. Even her granddaughter, an aspiring actress and singer who grew up in Mamaroneck, was on hand tonight for her grandmother's performance. “Growing up around her and her music has been such an inspiration,” says Cheyenne Elliot.
