I was reading the paper this morning and came across a headline that said ‘Lena Horne dies’ – perhaps you’ve already heard. I remember her singing on the radio and some old shows, and was always impressed by her lovely voice. She was also very involved with the NAACP and activism, promoting civil rights. But YouTube will preserve her performances for a while.
Her first big hit was Stormy Weather in 1943
A Tv performance of Moon River in 1965
Some Day My Prince Will Come in 1967
And my favorite, in 2008
