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:

Sade – “Soldier of Love” (music video)

Legendary Jazz and Soft Rock singer Sade has finally released the official music video for her new single, “Soldier of Love”. Check it out below:

Classic Sade! And I like it! First of all, let me state that I am very excited that Sade is returning with a new movement. The video is very dark and conceptually fits with the song. I like! “Soldier of Love” has already reached #15 on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip Hop Songs chart, and is showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon. The album of the same title, hits stores on February 8th!
