    @WarRogers as long as you dont say Beyonces name then we will be fine because she is unlike those other bubble gum pop singers of today, she is the real deal!!!

    I’ve just realised there’s a Lena Horne sized gap in my record collection.

    *Logs onto Amazon to rectify*

  6. WarRogers says:

    Now this is real singing. Not all this over-the-top spastic vocal ranges like pop stars today. Don’t even want to say their names on a Lena Horne vid. It’s blasphemous

    Lena’s Broadway mastery creates a very unique mood and atmosphere when performing on stage solely to interpret song as an artist, but because her Broadway presence dominates she interprets this lovely song with imagination–acting out the very essence of the words she creates scenes in our mind that only experienced artist of her caliber are able to do.

    Lena Horne was such an iconic woman, beautiful, sensual, sensational, and a beautiful human being. May you rest in peace Ms Horne, i know u are singing with the angels.. from a very devoted fan. You will forever live on with your music. God bless you and your family.

    @less01 nope, to all of that. she was never underrated, couldnt have been more highly rated actually
    she doesnt have judys shouting belting
    she doesnt have streisand range or breathe control, although Barbra adopted a lot of other isms from her

    she is sublime, and smashing, and was lauded as one of the greatest singers of all time for all the decades of her career. shes also significant for success in Hollywood, Broadway, records, and being a pioneer of civil rights
    -Peace to you

    @1146beaver I believe Lena was a very underrated singer! she had pipes like garland and a range like barbra or even higher and excellent breath control

  14. theblueangel28 says:

    Some songs are glorified nursery rhymes – this? This breaks away from the cliché’ like a Ginsberg Howl! Amazing arrangement and interpretation. She did not have the best instrument but when she used it she played it flawlessly.

    Ms. Horne made ANY song she sang, her song. Singing a Kris Kristofferson song was an unlikely song but I’ve never heard it done better. What a beautiful giant she was.
