Lena Horne was presented with the 348th Star on the Palm Springs Walk of Stars on October 26th at 139 S. Palm Canyon Drive. Over 100 people attended this dedication ceremony. Speakers told of her many accomplishments, as a singer, actress, Civil Rights Advocate and a beautiful and caring woman.

Lena Horne lived in the Desert during the 50’s. She became a movie star and broke down barriers for other black women in films and stage. Her career lasted all of her life as a singer and dancer. She had a one woman show on Broadway in 1981. Everyone knows her by her signature song STORMY WEATHER.

Her niece Michele Hart and Grandson William A. Jones attended the dedication. Both spoke lovingly about this great woman. Many other friends were in the audience to honor her. PSWS President Bob Alexander helped them unveil the star for all to see.
