Musical tribute includes 2 Olivet staff members

January 25, 2016


“Stormy Weather” the jazz standard raised up by the late singer and actress Lena Horne was performed with panache by her great niece Kimmie Horne as part of a musical tribute honoring the later Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. at Olivet College Jan. 21.


The 60 or so audience members were embraced by Horne, who said the audience reminded her of “family.” So much so, that she added the Sly and the Family Stone classic “It’s a Family Affair,” to her seven set line-up, accompanied by the talented Al McKenzie Trio.
