Lena Horne was one of the first famous people I learned about via "Sesame Street" -- any time she came on the screen, she had my attention for her big, soft eyes and her bigger voice.
Here are a few Lena Horne greatest hits, if only as a result of the Children's Television Workshop.
But even with Kermit and The Muppets, for Lena Horne, nobody beats "The Wiz" and her version of "Believe In Yourself."
So long, Lena.
