Lena Horne, legendary singer and actress, dies at age 92


Hollywoodnews.com: Lena Horne has passed away at the age of 92. The legendary singer-actress died Sunday night at New York-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center in New York, according to her son-in-law, Kevin Buckley.

Horne enjoyed a productive entertainment career that included several films (“Stormy Weather,” “The Wiz”) and television appearances. But she’s best known for her music, including memorable collaborations with Tony Bennett and her Tony-nominated performance in “Calypso.”

A Brooklyn native, Horne also will be remembered for her activism. After studying under musical legends Cab Calloway and Duke Ellington at the Cotton Club in Harlem, Horne struck out on her own. The N.Y. Times reports that Horne became “the first black performer to be signed to a long-term contract by a major Hollywood studio” when she inked a deal with Louis B. Mayer at MGM.

Horne is survived by her daughter, Gail Lumet Buckley.
