Recently we all had to say goodbye to one of the greatest gifts to the world of Art, Miss Lena Horne. To digest her passing for me is a moment of a loss so tremendous; we who have had successful careers know that it was because of men and women of her excellence and bravery. We truly stand on her beautiful shoulders.
My personal moment with Miss Horne was brief but absolutely magical. While I was on tour with The Wiz (National Company) in Los Angeles, Miss Horne attended our show; I was starring as Mr. Wiz at the time. She came to my dressing room and paid me one of the finest compliments I've ever received: that because of my rendition of the song "If You Believe." she was moved to record it. We all remember her film version of this song.
All I can say is:"There'll never be another like her." I'm truly saddened at The Loss of an Icon.
