Jazz Singer Kimmie Horne On Her Detroit Roots And Performing All Over The World

On this edition of In Black America, producer/host John L. Hanson Jr. speaks with Kimmie Horne, an international jazz vocalist, model and actress.

When you hear Horne sing, you know she was born to be a jazz singer. She’s a descendant of the legendary songstress Lena Horne and the niece of the great singer/songwriter Cleveland Horne of the Fantastic Four.

Horne talks about the influence Detroit had on her becoming a singer, the jazz festival she started, being a spokesperson and her new CD.

John L. Hanson is the producer and host of the nationally syndicated radio series In Black America. It’s heard on home station KUT at 10 p.m. Tuesdays and 6:30 a.m. Sundays — and weekly on close to 20 stations across the country. The weekly podcast of IBA, the only nationally broadcast Black-oriented public affairs radio program, is one of KUT’s most popular podcasts.
