R.I.P. Lena Horne

Sally Kalson penned an article for Tuesday's Post-Gazette about the Pittsburgh connections of the singer and actress Lena Horne, who died Sunday at the age of 92. Horne lived in the Steel City for a few years during her childhood and again as a young newlywed, Kalson reports.

Horne's funeral took place today at the Church of St. Ignatius Loyola here in New York.

In memoriam, here is Horne's 1940s rendition of "Stormy Weather" for this week's "YouTube clip for a peaceful weekend."
