Mary Wilson of the Supremes stars in James Gavin’s Stormy Weather: The Music of Lena Horne on Friday, Jan. 9, 2015 at 8 p.m.
The “living, breathing biography” of Horne combines powerful vocals as well as visual images to create a defining portrait of the American jazz icon, whose velvet pipes made famous everlasting hits including Stormy Weather, Honeysuckle Rose, Yesterday When I Was Young and more.
Along with the evocative performance by Wilson, the multi-media concert features a narrator, a trio of jazz musicians and rare audio and video footage from Horne’s life. Thrilling arrangements, dazzling performances and material from hundreds of interviews provide a vivid portrait the singer, actor and civil rights activist, from her Cotton Club glory days, where she began singing at age 16, to the back lots of Hollywood studios and the swanky but bigoted resorts of Las Vegas.
