Lena Horne, one of the best female vocalists ever, was born on this day in 1917..........she passed away at age 92 in 2010

Her story was rather remarkable:
"Lena Horne, who was the first black performer to be signed to a long-term contract by a major Hollywood studio and who went on to achieve international fame as a singer, died on Sunday night at New York-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center in New York." (NYT)It's hard to pick a favorite song but her version of "Where or When" is great:
