Dionne Warwick‘s calling on her A-list friends to help celebrate her 80th birthday … which is doubling as a fundraiser for an important cause.
The legendary singer hopped on “TMZ Live” Friday to dish deets on her Holiday Musical Birthday Celebration … a virtual party and concert, going down Saturday, her 80th birthday.
Dionne’s using the occasion to lift spirits with her angelic voice while also raising money for Hunger Not Impossible … an org connecting kids and families in need with prepaid, nutritious to-go meals from nearby restaurants.

Some of Dionne’s pals joining the festivities include Aloe Blacc and country stars John Rich and the Oak Ridge Boys — but anyone can join through her website, where fans can buy packages with cool perks. Aside from getting entry to the virtual event, you can get a private Zoom meet-and-greet with Dionne and a special shout out from her.
