Harlem fave Dionne Warwick stated that “Burt’s transition is like losing a family member. These words I’ve been asked to write are being written with sadness over the loss of my Dear Friend and my Musical Partner.”
She continued, “On the lighter side we laughed a lot and had our run-ins, but always found a way to let each other know our family, like roots, were the most important part of our relationship.”
“My heartfelt condolences go out to his family, letting them know he is now peacefully resting and I too will miss him,” said Dionne.
