Singer, Lena Horne died in the hospital yesterday at age 92. According to Access Hollywood , Singer Lena Horne died yesterday at the New York-Presbyterian Hospital. Lena’s spokeswoman Gloria Chin would not release anymore details about the situation. In the past, Lena Horne was very honest about the underlying reason for her success.
She once stated, “I was unique in that I was a kind of black that white people could accept. I was their daydream. I had the worst kind of acceptance because it was never for how great I was or what I contributed. It was because of the way I looked.” Lena was one of the first black performers hired to sing with a major white band, the first to play the Copacabana nightclub,and one of the few to get a Hollywood contract.
Lena Horne felt very comfortable vocally,while on screen,records,and in nightclubs. She possessed a wide musical range,singing blues and jazz songs like “The Lady Is a Tramp,” and “Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered.” You can read the full story at Access Hollywood by Clicking Here.
