Lena Horne (1917-2010)

From the Times (via the P-G):
Lena Horne, who was the first black performer to be signed to a long-term contract by a major Hollywood studio and who went on to achieve international fame as a singer, died on Sunday night at New York-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell hospital in New York. She was 92 and lived in Manhattan.
There was other stuff in the news this morning but this seemed the most important.
