Liza Minnelli's estranged husband David Gest is planning a major tribute to Dionne Warwick featuring some of the world's biggest soul and gospel names.

The promoter has lined up Smokey Robinson, the O'JAYS, Stevie Wonder, Gladys Knight, ASHFORD + SIMPSON and siblings CECE and Bebe Winans to honour Warwick on the 45th anniversary of her big break.

Warwick's sister CISSY HOUSTON, Olivia Newton-John, Gloria Estefan and SIR Cliff Richard are also among the impressive parade of performers lined-up for the star-studded show.

The tribute concert will take place at Los Angeles' Kodak Theatre on Thursday (26JAN06).
