Grammy Award-winning recording artist Dionne Warwick made an appearance on Capitol Hill today to support a bill that would require broadcasters to pay royalties to singers and performers when airing their songs on the radio.
Broadcasters, she said "don't pay musicians a single penny for their work."
Using lyrics from one of her popular songs, she said, "I'm sure you all thought that I walked on by with a check in my hand. I wish I did, but I just walked on by."
Warwick , wearing Ugg boots, a baseball cap and sunglasses, said Congress needs to do more than "say a little prayer" for singers who aren't compensated by passing the Performance Rights Act.
Take a look at the clip of her remarks.
