Singer. "Stormy Weather." "Can't Help Lovin' That Man." Lena Horne: The Lady and Her Music (Tony and Grammy Award-winning Broadway show)
"I no longer have to be a 'credit,' I don't have to be a 'symbol' to anybody. I don't have to be a 'first' to anybody. I don't have to be an imitation of a white woman that Hollywood sort of hoped I'd become. I'm me, and I'm like nobody else."
