Lena Horne - Stormy Weather/If You Believe

For those of you who never saw her onstage, I thought that it might be good for you to see some footage of “The Lady” in her prime. This is the end of her one woman show, a scene that is actually depicted in STORMY WEATHER.

Enjoy it!

With glamour, grace and an inner fire that blazed a trail for generations, the legendary Lena Horne has never failed to amaze! Taking both Hollywood and the music industry by storm, her voice has resonated throughout the decades, not only through her incredible vocal talent ("From This Moment On," "The Lady is a Tramp" and of course "Stormy Weather"), but also through her determination to fight for what she believed. Don't miss the incredible Leslie Uggams in this new musical extravaganza as she takes us on the sometimes stormy, always extraordinary journey of an American icon.
