Lena Horne (1917-2010) & Ronnie James Dio (1942-2010)

This week, the world lost two pioneering artists. On Monday, world renowned and highly respected vocalist, Lena Horne passed away at 92 and today, legendary hard rock and metal vocalist, Ronnie James Dio passed away at 67. Instead of writing some sort of eulogy or obituary for the artists, I would rather thank their families for allowing us to spend time with these incredible people through their songs and performances. We'll never know what the world would have been without them nor should we ever wonder. The art they left behind will stand as a testament to the beauty and amazement that is the human voice. To their families and friends, thank you.
