PARADISE, Calif. - Fans of Grammy-winning singer Dionne Warwick left the Paradise Performing Arts Center with disappointment after she canceled her show on Thursday.

Warwick was supposed to perform, but audience members say after waiting for the show to begin, Warwick came out on stage with promoter Steve Schuman and said she had to cancel.

Warwick said that her good friend Sammy Davis Jr. once told her that even if you have one person in the audience, you still give it your all, as long as you get paid.

Schuman did not comment on the specifics of what amount of money Warwick was contracted to receive or whether she received payment at all.

Schuman did say that ticket sales were less than expected and that ticket holders would receive a refund.

Warwick is second only to Aretha Franklin as the most charted female vocalist of all time, according to Billboard.
