2010: Singer, actress and dancer Lena Horne dies of heart failure at the age of 92 in New York City. Horne started out as a nightclub singer at the age of 16 before moving to Hollywood and signing a contract with MGM in 1943, becoming the first black performer to sign a long-term contract with a major studio. She appeared in movies such as "Cabin in the Sky" and "Stormy Weather" before being blacklisted for her left-leaning political views. She then returned to nightclub singing, took part in the March on Washington in August 1963, and found work on television, all while releasing well-received record albums. Horne, seen here in a 1961 publicity photo, returned to the screen three more times: in the 1969 film "Death of a Gunfighter," in the 1978 musical "The Wiz" and the 1994 MGM retrospective "That's Entertainment! III."
