*There was a very special moment when Sirius XM Radio’s Joe Madison surprised singer Dionne Warwick during an interview about her upcoming Christmas and 80th birthday fundraiser that will take place on Saturday, December 12 as a live online event.
Joe had Ms. Warwick’s childhood friend Gwendolyn King (former Commissioner of the U.S. Social Security Administration) waiting on the line, and Ms. King committed $10,000 to the organization “Hunger: Not Impossible,” which will receive portions of the proceeds from the Grammy winning legend’s upcoming live stream celebration. The surprise and the donation brought Dionne Warwick to tears.
Here is the clip of that moment (Joe also committed to donating the contents of his “swear jar”):
The full interview will air on during Sirius XM’s The Joe Madison Show on Friday, December 11th, 2020
This year held many great moments for Ms. Warwick – her appearance on Fox TV’s The Masked Singer as well as dropping by the Verzus online special with Gladys Knight and Patti Labelle being two examples. Her 80th birthday and holiday celebration taking place as a live stream event on Saturday, December 12th 2020, at 7 pm EST/4 pm Pacific will feature guests such as Johnny Mathis, the Oak Ridge Boys w/John Rich, ChloeXHalle, and Aloe Blacc, to name a few. In addition, entertainers and celebrities from around the world will share birthday and Christmas greetings.
Portions of the proceeds from the livestream event will benefit Hunger Not Impossible – a text-based service that connects kids and families in need with prepaid, nutritious, to-go meals from nearby restaurants. “Every year, there are families that cannot afford to even buy basic foods for their children – and it’s worse near the holiday season,” Ms. Warwick stated. “With this event, we’ll be able to help this wonderful organization with its efforts to feed folks.”
