1. In 1981, Horne did a one-woman Broadway show called Lena Horne: The Lady and Her Music. Horne took audiences on a journey through her five-decade career. If people didn't appreciate Horne already, they did when they heard her voice. Horne showed that her voice had a huge range. She sang different types of music that included blues and jazz, as well as relatively light songs, like "The Lady Is a Tramp" and "Bewitched, Bothered, and Bewildered."

In the early 1970s, Horne lost her father, her son, and her husband. Filled with sadness, she withdrew. She refused to perform until friends coaxed her back into the spotlight. When she came back it was with a new sense of purpose. She felt less bitter about the unfair treatment she faced because she was black. But she was no less determined to fight it. Stepping back onto the stages of concert halls, she enjoyed a new wave of popularity.
