Lena Horne, photographed as she sang by Philippe Halsmann in 1954. Ms. Horne was never a big fan of her own singing voice. In 1943, she told Newsweek magazine that she was still “learning to sing,” and she would later tell many interviewers how much she loved Aretha Franklin and wanted to sing like her.
