Lady & Her Music.
Lena Horne (born June 30, 1917– May 9, 2010), is an American singer and actress. Horne joined the chorus of the Cotton Club at the age of sixteen and became a band singer and nightclub performer before moving to Hollywood where she had small parts in numerous movies, and much more substantial parts in the films Cabin in the Sky and Stormy Weather (1943). Due to the red scare and her progressive political views, Horne found herself blacklisted and unable to get work in Hollywood. She then returned to her roots as a nightclub performer. At the 1981 Drama Desk Awards, Lena Horne: The Lady and Her Music was nominated for four Drama Desk Awards, winning one. It lost the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Musical to The Pirates of Penzance. Arthur Faria was nominated for the Outstanding Director of a Musical, and Thomas Skelton for Outstanding Lighting Design.
