  1. I loved Lena Horne. She was a class act and I will miss her. And damn she looked good for her age. (At least the last time I saw her.)

  2. Truthfully I remember her most from Sesame Street! lol

  3. Liz, Since I'm sort of her era, I remember her and have heard her sing in person. Janet

  4. Wow janet that's so cool you got to see her sing in person!
