Dionne Warwick "My Favorite Time of the Year" new album. Dionne Warwick Wraps First Ever Christmas Album With DMI Records. Debut CD on DMI Records Features Collaborations with Top Names Including Gladys Knight and Dave Koz
The recently record label, DMI Records, announces the completion of "My Favorite Time of the Year," the first-ever Christmas album from legendary vocalist, Dionne Warwick, the first artist to sign with the label. Dionne Warwick "My Favorite Time of the Year" album was released on October 26, 2004.
This release follows the success of DMI's Grammy-nominated "Church: Songs of Soul and Inspiration," a 2003 project that featured Dionne Warwick and an illustrious roster including Patti Labelle, Chaka Khan and Dr. Maya Angelou. Tena Clark, DMI Entertainment CEO and gold and platinum songwriter/producer was behind the board for both projects.
In addition to Dionne Warwick's remarkable performances of selected traditional and new Christmas songs, "My Favorite Time of the Year" features Gladys Knight joining Warwick on "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas," a duet with gospel great BeBe Winans on "I Believe in Christmas," a song he composed especially for Dionne and Dave Koz adding his patented smooth jazz sax to "White Christmas," Joy to the World" and Winter Wonderland."
"We have a long-standing history in music, and as an emerging label, we are honored to have signed Dionne Warwick and I am delighted to have produced this album," said Tena Clark, CEO of DMI. "As a little girl who first heard Dionne's voice when I was ten years old, I still get the chills at 50. Working with Dionne was a joy, and it's a thrill to deliver this holiday package to Dionne's fans and lovers of Christmas music worldwide."
Dionne Warwick expresses, "It's always exciting to work with people who have a special talent, and Tena is a special talent. It shows in the production of this project, and her apparent skills as a businesswoman at the helm of this wonderful recording company. I'm proud and happy to be a part of the DMI records family and looking forward to a long and fruitful relationship. This being my very first Christmas project, I am truly excited, and I, like so many others wonder what took me so long. Well, the wait is over, and I am certain all will enjoy it as much as I enjoyed doing it."
