RIP, Lena Horne

Does anyone else remember her singing "I've Got a Crush on You" to Kermit the frog? The NY times obit is here. R.I.P., Ms. Horne.

One of Lena Horne's many accompanists apparently was the jazz legend Al Haig. Here his widow, named Lady Haig by Dizzy Gillespie, recalls Lena Horne acting up in Vegas for civil rights~~~

She was the one women that I honestly think my dad would have left mom for.
