Lena Horne - Stormy Weather/If You Believe

For MLK day, Lena! I saw her in concert in the first incarnation of Drury Lane Water Tower Place when it was in-the-round, pre-movieplex. It was around 1980, just before "The Wiz", a couple of years before "The Lady And Her Music" triumph. I watched her as she crescendo'd to this explosive Stormy Weather, and was awestruck by her power and anger, and shear presence. I knew in my gut a major comeback was in the works.
