SoulTracks Lost Gem: Whitney Houston paid musical tribute to Dionne Warwick

Share this article

    Back in 1997, the 34 year old Whitney Houston, still in the latter stages of her Imperial Period, had a series of concerts DAR Constitution Hall in Washington DC. One of the shows was broadcast on HBO to much fanfare.

    The concert featured a number of Houston’s biggest hits, but also included a cool live medley tribute to her cousin, Dionne Warwick. “Walk On By,” “A House Is Not A Home,” “I Say A Little Prayer” and “Alfie” were all 60s smashes for Warwick, and they sound great revisited by Houston for her audience.

    Check out this tribute medley. It is our latest SoulTracks Lost Gem.
