Over the weekend, Dionne Warwick announced that she would be teaming up with Krayzie Bone and producer Nomad for a new single titled “Power In The Name,” an inspirational number that will see its proceeds going to charities for the homeless. Today (Jan. 19), that song officially arrives, with Warwick & Co. giving praise to their higher power over a mix of hip hop and gospel production:
“Promise he will always be, the only one we’ll ever need, a source of our security, heal a broken heart, the only thing he asks of us, is walk by faith and seek his love, know the word and when our problem comes, remember who I am…”
“Hey, it paid off … you know, [I tweet] whatever comes to mind, is basically what I do. You know, I want to ask a question for whoever it is that I want to ask of, and I just throw it out there, and you know what’s so wonderful, I get an answer.”
She also spoke on her upcoming Las Vegas residency:
“Oh, I’m so excited about it, a room is being created for me at the Sterling Club, and I can’t wait to see it, you know. We start, I believe, it’s the middle or end of March, and I’m looking forward to it and I certainly hope those in Vegas who missed me like I miss them, will come on out and hang out with me again.
