R.I.P. Ms. Lena Horne (1917 - 2010) - A Class Act!

Dear Readers,

I'm moving over some old (as far back as 2009) posts from the main EIRIC™ site to here. Reason: I'm going with a different direction for the front page. Please feel free to take a look and provide your feedback.



In the 1940s Ms. Horne was one of the first black performers hired to sing with a major white band, the first to play the Copacabana nightclub and among a handful with a Hollywood contract. To her fans (and some of ours), one of the most memorable moment is her 1973 performance with Kermit the Frog on Sesame Street. Ms. Horne, who dealt with a very color-conscious world during her career, was appropriately tapped to help Kermit come to the conclusion that 'green is just right for him and just what he wants to be.' For your viewing pleasure, please see below for "It's Not Easy Bein' Green."
