Showtune Sunday: All About Lena Horne!
The great Lena Horne, who died in 2010 at the age of 92, left behind so many wonderful performances and I’ve chosen three of them for Showtune Sunday.
My absolute favorite is Believe in Yourself from The Wiz. I remember being blown away when seeing her belt it out when watching the film in a theater way back when.
But then, Miss Horne had been playing audiences away for decades by the time of that 1978 film.
Here as well are her performing Stormy Weather and Moon River.
