Dionne Warwick Tells Off BDS — Will Perform in Israel

Lauryn Hill may have caved to pressure, but not Warwick.


Famed American singer Dionne Warwick has refused to bow to pressure from the likes of Roger Waters and intends to go ahead with her planned concert in Israel. This in spite of fellow American singer Lauryn Hill’s decision last week to cave to pressure and cancel her concert in the country.

Warwick joins performers like the band Primus who have also told Roger Waters what he can go do with himself.

The 74 year old will perform at the Menora Mivtachim Arena on May 19th.

The singer released a statement which read that she, “would never fall victim to the hard pressures of Roger Waters, from Pink Floyd, or other political people who have their views on politics in Israel.”

“Waters’ political views are of no concern to Ms. Warwick, as she holds her own unique view on world matters. Art has no boundaries. Ms. Warwick will always honor her contract. If Ms. Warwick had an objection to performing in Israel, no offer would have been entertained and no contract would have been signed, ” it added.
