The iconic singer passed away yesterday. You can read about her life here.
But let's listen to her music:
Here she is, circa 1938, just a pretty teen age band singer who just seems to be having a good time. I love her simple hair, clean face, unembellished silver dress. Her smile is infectious.
Stormy Weather, the song with which she would forever be linked.
And to prove that Ms. Horne could a both class and groove to any song, here she is with the Muppets:
"I'm not alone, I'm free. I no longer have to be a credit, I don't have to be a symbol to anybody; I don't have to be a first to anybody."
- Lena Horne
