Lena Horne-"Stormy Weather"
Lena Horne, 1950
Lena Mary Calhoun Horne June 30, 1917 - May 9, 2010 Lena Horne, an African-American Singer, Dancer, Actress and Activist was born June 30, 1917, in Brooklyn, NY. Horne began working as a singer and dancer at the Cotton Club in Harlem at the age of 16 (1933). While there, she met greats such as Cab Calloway and Duke Ellington. Horne went from the Cotton Club to her first film, (musical) "The Duke is Tops" (1938) at just 21 years old. That was just the beginning. Horne went on to play in more films and sang in theaters. In 1943, her career blossomed while with MGM, gaining her work with 20th Century-Fox for the All-Black musical Panama Hattie for "Stormy Weather". She also appeared in "Cabin in the Sky" the same year. Horne continued to work with all-black productions beside greats like Ethel Waters and Eddie "Rochester Anderson. Other roles were "Boogie-Woogie Dream" (1944), "Words and Music" (1948) and "Mantan Messes Up" (1946). As an African-American, Horne experienced some turmoil due to racism. In 1956 after "Meet me in Las Vegas", she withdrew from working on films and gleaned towards music, stage performances, and her part in Activism through the March on Washington in 1963. She returned to film in 1969, with a role in "Death of a Gunfighter". Lena wouldn't been seen on the big screen for another nine years later, where she performed in the All-Black musical, "The Wiz" (1978). Throughout the 70's, 80's and 90's she appeared in television roles as herself. (Harry & Lena-ABC/The Muppet Show/Sesame Street/A Different World/The Cosby Show). Horne announced her retirement from the industry in 1980, then the next year returned on Broadway with, Lena Horne: "The Lady and Her Music". Later she appeared in "A Century of Women" (1994) and "That's Entertainment III" (1994). Horne received many awards (Grammy/Tony/NAACP/Lifetime Achievement), tributes and was showcased through re-releases of her projects.

Lena Horne....classical beauty
Fans saw Lena Horne as a heart-breakingly gorgeous movie star with an apple-pie smile and voice made of silk. Behind-the-scenes, co-stars and friends saw Lena as cold, calculated, and broken. The world saw her as black. Struggling for success during a civil rights revolution, it's no wonder there were many sides to the troubled jazz singer from Brooklyn. Lena was born in 1917 into a middle-class family, who taught her never to tolerate racism and always act like a dignified lady. When she was 15, her stage ambitious mother got her a gig as dancer for the Cotton Club, a famous hot spot in Harlem. She was introduced to the fast-paced world of jazz, rubbing elbows with Billie Holiday and Duke Ellington. She began getting more prestigious gigs. Her sultry vocals, sparkling smile, and pretty light-skinned face made her an instant sensation with white audiences. It wasn't long before she was whisked to Broadway and recording albums. In 1941, the 24-year-old became the first African-American signed to a long-term contract to MGM. Unfortunately, the movie studio was perplexed with what to do with a black leading lady. Roles that should have gone straight to Lena ended up going to her white counterparts. She watched in dismay as Ava Gardner was dusted with dark makeup to play a mulatto in Showboat. It broke her heart to see the Viennese glam queen Hedy Lamarr play Tondelayo, the Congo goddess in White Cargo. And the role of that light-skinned black girl passing as white in Pinky? Lena never stood a chance of earning that Oscar-nominated part. Instead, Lena was placed in all-black films or given musical cameos in big-budget motion pictures. To help further her career, Lena raised eyebrows by marrying Lennie Hayton, a white composer. It worked. He got her gigs no black manager could ever have done in that time period, she later said. They later divorced. Despite her success, reality always socked her in the gut. For example, she became seriously ill while headlining at the ritzy Savoy Plaza and wasn't even allowed to stay in one of the hotel's rooms to recover. She became heavily involved with civil rights during this time period, participating in marches and speaking out at rallies. And she began to resent the upper-class white audiences who paid top dollars to see her perform. She developed a cool, distant exterior towards her fans. In the 1950s, Lena was labeled a Communist by the government for her civil rights work. She was blacklisted from Hollywood and could not find work. As the years passed, Lena regained her career and starred in movies, performed on Broadway, and appeared on television. She passed away two years ago at the age of 92. Here is Lena's most famous song, Stormy Weather: What do you think of Lena?

TODAY THE WORDS are WHY NOT GOD? I am happy to see the film makers producing movies such as Son of God, Noah, and the other ones coming out later. A lot of young people haven't been exposed to the subject of God and this led me to my message this morning. I woke up early, which is normal in the Miller home and wanted to check on the news since there is a lot of turmoil and weather. A commercial came on for some kind of sinus relief. The actor had a date and was worried about his sinus problems and relayed he was going to get his normal medicine. Out of nowhere, a voice spoke to him and said his medicine wouldn't work and he should get this other brand. It hit me like a ton of bricks; no, not about the medicine, but how our world wants us to accept voices from nowhere, talking pigs, geckos dancing, ducks quacking brands while doing all kinds of human feats, and I could go on and on. We are subjected to special effects in movies and we are taken to other worlds or space; the characters find demons, aliens, altered beings and we are pulled into fantasy worlds every day. Why then, is it so hard for people to believe in God? Imagination comes directly from our minds and I feel we were given imagination to release the fear of a Higher Power, A Creator of Life, and A Powerful Savior. We bought into the Star Wars theme; the Terminator; John Wayne the Hero; the Lone Ranger; E. T., and others; why not God? As humans, here is the hard truth and it is one I had to realize some years back. If we buy God exists; His Word is True; Jesus is Our Savior; and there IS a Heaven and a Hell; we must act ourselves. There are steps to salvation and it isn't to the popcorn stand for refreshments. It is a move within the human spirit to humble ourselves, recognize our weakness as humans, ask for forgiveness of sins and transgressions, and pray for salvation. When we watch actors on screens, we can be passive. Oh yes, we can cheer them on; cry when they get hurt; or take on their persona with costumes, books, DVDs, etc. but we are not being asked to participate personally. With God, I chose to act in accordance to His Words; I had to move out of circles and a lifestyle with lots of changes. I live the part; I breathe the part; and I have to continually ask for a re-write of the script when I do something wrong, but guess what? The "Oscar" I am nominated for and promised by God I can win is Eternal Life. Yes I believe in God; Why Not God? DAILY FEATURED BIBLE VERSE: John 5:24 ESV Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life. He does not come into judgment, but has passed from death to life. (c) copyright 2014 Arline Lott Miller. The material here copyrighted, use only by permission.
