Liza Minnelli has released the following statement on the passing of Lena Horne:

My father discovered Lena Horne and brought her to Hollywood to star in "Cabin in the Sky," which has throughout the years owned the position as being the first elegant and unique all black movie. It made Lena a star.
I knew her from the time I was born, and whenever I needed anything she was there. She was funny, sophisticated and truly one of a kind. We lost an original. Thank you Lena.

Stage and screen star, and "Stormy Weather" singer Lena Horne died Sunday, May 9, at the age of 92 at the NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital in New York City.
