Rest in Peace to a PIONEER!

I know I am madd late, but better late than never right! Especially when it comes to the death of a GREAT! On Sunday, the incomparable Lena Horne passed away at the age of 92. As most people were, I was very shocked to learn of her passing. She lived a life full of accomplishments, while blazing the trail for the Whitney’s, Janet’s and Beyonce’s to do what they do now. My earliest memory of Ms. Horne was her portrayal of Glenda the Goodwich in one of the best black movie musicals ever, The Wiz. Other memories of  Lena Horne that stand out for me are her appearances on The Cosby Show and A Different World. She was definitely a REGAL  and LEGENDARY individual, who will be forever missed. #RIPLenaHorne.

HERE’S MS. HORNE’S APPEARANCE ON THE COSBY SHOW BACK IN 1984:
