The Lena Horne Tribute Show will recognize and honor the astonishing career and accomplishments – both on and off stage – of the legendary Lena Horne, a voice for her time and all time. At a time when all we seem to hear on the news is tragedy, it is more important than ever to celebrate and share the stories of role models like Lena Horne. Lena Horne had a powerful voice, was a charismatic performer, and had an inspirational legacy.
