  • Dionne Warwick plays at UCA Tuesday night.

DIONNE WARWICK
7:30 p.m. University of Central Arkansas. $30-$40.

There was a time when Dionne Warwick was known more for her endorsement of the Psychic Friends Network than for her remarkable voice. According to longtime partner Burt Bacharach, Warwick possessed "a delicacy when singing softly — like miniature ships in bottles."

It seems though, that her affiliation with the psychic hotline has faded into the background, just an odd footnote to a long career — 50 years and counting — in the music biz. She had a string of hits that spanned several decades, including "Walk On By," "Then Came You," "I Say a Little Prayer," "Do You Know the Way to San Jose?" and "That's What Friends Are For," among many others.

This concert kicks off UCA's Public Appearances series. Get tickets here.
