When Mo declared today's word to be "Storm" the immediate thought was Stormy Weather and the amazing Lena Horne. There is no way I could do her biography justice without writing about 500 inadequate pages, so do take the time to at least read her Wikipedia entry.
Below are two clips of "Stormy Weather" from You Tube. The first made during WWII and the second when she was still performing more than 40 years later. She is now 91 and no longer appears in public. Fortunately we have the film and recordings.
