Throughout her illustrious six-decade career, shown generously in vintage performance footage, Warwick has never held back her opinions or her passion for advocacy: for civil rights and for AIDS research. (Her AIDS-era anthem “That’s What Friends Are For” reaped millions in donated royalties.) Don’t Make Me Over follows her slow but steady rise from singing gospel in her New Jersey family church to winning the Apollo’s amateur night in 1957, putting herself through college by singing background until she ultimately demanded the name recognition she deserved.
