The Horne...... June 30, 1917 – May 9, 2010

Lena Horne.

From Bronze Venus

The first special memory I have of Lena Horne, is sitting one row in front of my parents with two of my brothers, in a movie theater (Chew and Chelten Ave's ... there's a Laundry there now, sigh) watching her sing 'Believe in Yourself' in The Wiz. Right after she finished, I turned to smile at my Mom, and she was already looking at me,... waiting for me to turn around. She knew I would love that performance. Of course, she had already seen the movie. LOL They never followed the movie ratings, even it it said it was a G rated family movie they would go see it first before they took us to see it.

And of course..... the show we watched every week, Sanford and Son.
