      Lena Horne

      Lena Horne

      Highest Rated: 100% Till the Clouds Roll By (1946)

      Lowest Rated: 44% The Wiz (1978)

      Birthday: Jun 30, 1917

      Birthplace: Brooklyn, New York, USA

      One of the greatest American artists of all time, Lena Horne endured more than her fair share of "Stormy Weather" as the title of her 1943 film and sultry signature song implied. Yet the chanteuse and actress - who possessed one of the most lush voices in the history of recorded music - broke down barriers, not only with performances of memorable songs like "Honeysuckle Rose" and "Black Coffee," but also for speaking out about the prejudice she experienced during her early years as a contract player at MGM and the subsequent hardships she experienced throughout her time in the entertainment business. The recipient of a Kennedy Center Honor in 1984, the elegant actress was a legend with a cause. Horne sang her pain, acted through intolerance, and fought long and hard to erase color lines.
