I chose to salute my girl Lena as it was the last day of my show…
After almost a year and a half of prep and four months of a show, its hard to imagine that our chapter in “The Beauties” is closed.
Through this process I have found the real me… and who better to learn from than the great Lena Horne.
Lena, I can only hope that I was able to capture your tenacity, beauty, talent and humility. I would not trade this experience for anything in the world, and while it may be the end of this show, I have a feeling its not the end of you and me.
My respect and love for you has only grown. Through telling your story I have found passion, inspiration and that belief in myself that you once sang about years ago.
I thank you, thank you, thank you!

Whose like us?
