RIP Lena Horne 1917-2010

Legendary singer Lena Horne died yesterday at the age of 92. I have to admit - I never really got into Lena Horne. It wasn’t a conscious decision; it’s just with so much music out there in the world it’s damn near impossible to get into it all. It’s not like I didn’t like vocal Jazz - I was into Nina Simone, Lady Day and Dinah Washington; I just never got the chance to give Ms. Horne a try. Considered by many to be one of the most beautiful women in the world, Lena Horne was an incredibly talented actress/singer and a major celebrity voice in the Civil Rights movement.
