Anyone who knows me knows that I love Lena Horne more than some people love their own families! I always have and, trust me, I always will. While I love all types and genres of music, I personally think jazz has the most heart and soul and Lena Horne is one of my very favorite jazz artists. She was also a very talented actress and I often (OFTEN) wish she had been given more roles.
I also love that she stood up and fought for racial equality and never backed down from speaking her mind.
Simply put, the lady was one in a billion and the tribute video below gives me a lot of joy.
