Dionne Warwick Expresses Great Sorrow Over Hal David's Death


The 'I Say a Little Prayer' singer says that losing the songwriter is like losing another family member.

Dionne Warwick mourns the death of songwriter Hal David, who wrote a number of hits like "I Say a Little Prayer" for her. "Words cannot express the sorrow i feel learning of hal's transition," she sent her condolence in a message on Facebook.

"I feel as if i have lost another family member but knowing i will always have him with me each time i sing the lyrics written for me by him will continue to bring me a sense of him being with me always," she continues. "May he now rest in peace."

The former ASCAP president died from a complication of stroke at Los Angeles' Cedars-Sinai Medical Center on Saturday, September 1 morning. He was 91. "My sincere condolence go out to eunice, his wife, jim and craig his children," Warwick concludes.

ASCAP's current president, Paul Williams, previously said, "As a lyric writer, Hal was simple, concise and poetic - conveying volumes of meaning in fewest possible words and always in service to the music. It is no wonder that so many of his lyrics have become part of our everyday vocabulary and his songs ...the backdrop of our lives."
