The marquees of Broadway theaters in New York will be dimmed tonight, at 7pm for exactly one minute, in memory of Lena Horne, who passed away on May 9 at the age of 92.

In a statement, Charlotte St. Martin, Executive Director of The Broadway League, commented, "Lena Horne was a national treasure who broke through racial barriers with the gift of her voice.
