Lena Horne is an actress and singer who's had a very illustrious career since the 1930s. She is perhaps most well-known for her singing of 'Stormy Weather' in the 1943 movie of the same name.
Many of Ms. Horne's recordings have been heard on soundtracks of several movies over the years.
In 1982 I sent Ms. Horne this photo, to her residence in California. She returned it within one month.
Here's Ms. Horne singing 'Stormy Weather'.
