LEGENDARY soul diva Dionne Warwick will tour Australia in November, bringing her granddaughter and recent reality television contestant Cheyenne Elliott to sing with her.
The Walk On By superstar supported the talented family member who she first brought on stage during her ill-fated bid to win reality singing show The Four earlier this year.
“She’s doing exceptionally well,” Warwick said of her granddaughter.
“Having her perform with me in Australia is very special, believe me.”
Warwick’s family was shocked by revelations in a new documentary that her sister Dee Dee, who died in 2008, had molested her niece Whitney Houston when she was a child.
Dionne and Houston’s mother Cissy have denied the allegations which surfaced in the Whitney film.
While questions about the film were off-limits when Houston spoke about her upcoming Australian tour, she addresses them in a Larry King special to be aired on Hulu on August 15.
“I have tried to refrain from responding to that,” the 77-year-old singer has told King.
“First of all, it’s totally hogwash. My sister would never, ever have done anything to do any harm to any child, especially within our family.
