From the Marlene Dietrich Facebook page:
There's a story here.. from Peter Riva (grandson): In the very early '60s Marlene heard about a wonderful singer up in Harlem maybe from Al Hirschfeld or Harold Arlen (family memories conflict), so Hal David and Burt Bacharach set off with Marlene to watch this singer. Dionne Warwick was belting it out. Over the next week, Marlene encouraged Burt to let her cover his newest songs--songs often written in hotel rooms (hers always had a piano) in London, Paris and so on while they toured (Burt was her conductor/arranger). On their third visit to watch Dionne sing, Marlene also met a wonderful young man (pictured here) who she knew was the real deal. She LOVED his music, always. Stevie Wonder (Little Stevie back then) was, as we all thought and Marlene expressed, "The best voice of the new generation." And she meant voice, talent, and character.
A side note: In 1985 at Mr. Chow's in London, Stevie Wonder sat at a table next to mine. I had the gall to ask for an autograph - which he kindly did (his aide holding his hand and pen) in my US passport... which I still have.
