The Tribute: Farewell Lena Horne

Picture 10

Aww just heard the sad news of Lena Horne’s passing at the age of 92. What an icon she was.

I thought I’d share two clips of her. One of her singing one of my favourite songs, ‘Stormy Weather’ and the other of her showcasing a wonderful comic sense in my favourite TV Show of all time, The Cosby Show.

Finally I thought I’d add this cheeky little Lena Horne quote I found. It just made me smile.

As much as I try, when I open my mouth, Lena comes out, And I get so mad. – Lena Horne

Amongst many other things, I'm a 30-something contemplative Londoner making the daily commute between contentment and ambition.When not blogging, I'm using my talents for good as communications director at Gingerland and co-founder of Love Harlem.
