Dionne Warwick releasing Christmas duets album

Dionne Warwick has recorded an album of Christmas duets with famous pals like Johnny Mathis, Michael Mcdonald and Aloe Blacc.
Dionne Warwick & The Voices of Christmas features 12 festive favourites all produced by the singer’s son Damon Elliott, aka Buck 22.
“It was such a joy to work with all of these diverse artists to reimagine these Christmas songs,” the soul legend says. “We had so much fun making this album and my wish is that it will bring a wide audience of listeners to enjoy these classics in a new way.”
Mathis was particularly thrilled to hit the studio with Dionne for a reworked version of Irving Berlin classic White Christmas, adding, “I love the fact that I am singing with one of my favourite people in the world.”
The album also features country stars John Rich and The Oak Ridge Boys, who joined Dionne for a version of Jingle Bells, and Andra Day, who features on a new rendition of Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer.
Meanwhile, Dionne can look forward to the holidays without having to worry about tax issues – her $7 million (£5.7 million) battle with America’s Internal Revenue Service has been dismissed.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Warwick and IRS officials have informed the courts they are dropping their lawsuits against each other.
The government accused the singer of owing them tax cash, while she fired back, insisting the debt was discharged in her 2013 bankruptcy, and sued agents, demanding they stop trying to collect the money.
She blamed a former business manager for messing up her finances.
At one point in the lengthy battle with the IRS, Warwick accused tax bosses of violating a court order when they tried to seize her assets, and demanded they be sanctioned for not following the judge’s order not to touch her money until the outcome of the case.
The case was heading to trial in March (19) but it was postponed due to a government shutdown.
