Lena Calhoun Horne was born June 30, 1917, in Brooklyn, New York. In her biography she stated that on the day she was born, her father was in the midst of a card game trying to get money to pay the hospital costs. Her parents divorced while she was still a toddler. Her mother left later in order to find work as an actress and Lena was left in the care of her grandparents. When she was seven her mother returned and the two traveled around the state, which meant that Lena was enrolled in numerous schools (for a time she also attended schools in Florida, Georgia and Ohio). Later she returned to Brooklyn. She quit school when she was 14 and got her first stage job at 16, dancing and later singing at the famed Cotton Club in Harlem.

I believe song arrangement is critical to producing a solid and concrete radio hit. I always keep my ear to what’s hot on the charts, I dissect what is working and why its working to give me an idea of what “sound” people are currently into. Once establishing what that audience niche is on to the intro which needs to grab that audience in. The verses of a song must be in detail and clean cut but keeping the audience interested. Its important not to make things too complicated and that’s where choruses glue the song together, simple catchy and easy to remember
More importantly people love their styles even though they have their own unique ones I remind myself its important to take what works and build around it molding into my own. This is a way to ease an audience into accepting and knowing how to react to my style of music and that is why its important to know who and what my competition is doing, simply because i can take notes from each of them combine it all and use it in my own way.
