Lena Horne, 1917-2010

I was saddened to read about the death of one of my favorite performers.  Lean Horne, for me, personified beauty and grace under any condition.  The fact that she had a beautiful voice and was a captivating actress, didn't hurt.  Even during the Red Scare of the 1950s that left her blacklisted in Hollywood, she kept her head held high and came out on top.  She will be missed by the millions of her fans, of which I'm honored to say I'm one of.

She was a beautiful, elegant woman. They simply don't make them like her anymore, and she will be missed.

I saw Ms. Horne years ago on Broadway. After the performance I waited outside the theater to see if she would sign an autograph. She was so gracious and happy to do so. After the first autograph she smiled at me and said, "you need more than one, what else can I sign?" I left with four.
