NEW YORK (KWWL) -- Legendary singer and actress Lena Horne passed away at the age of 92.

Horne broke racial barriers as a Hollywood and Broadway star.

She was the first black performer to sign a long term deal with a Hollywood studio and fought against bigotry throughout her career.

Her biggest hit came in 1943 with "Stormy Weather"
