Dionne Warwick - I say a little prayer for you - #MusicMonday

I pay tribute to lyricist Hal David, who died last week at age 91, in this week's #MusicMonday feature.  Hal David was best known for his collaborations with Burt Bacharach.  In the 1960s, Dionne Warwick interpreted many of their songs.  Here's a video, actually a montage of pictures of Dionne from the sixties, that features Bacharach/David's "I Say a Little Prayer for You":

And the relevance to what's ostensibly a beauty blog? Check out the opening verse:

The moment I wake up 
Before I put on my make up 
I say a little prayer for you 
While combing my hair now 
And wond'ring what dress to wear now 
I say a little prayer for you.
