A Hollywood Legend has died.

Singer, dancer and actress Lena Horne has died at age 92.

Horne blazed trails for black actors in the 1940's, being one of the first black singers hired to perform with a major white band, and one of a handful of black actors to have a Hollywood contract.

Horne starred in the 1943 movie-musical "Stormy Weather," and became popular for her rendition of the song of the same title.
