A wonderful tribute with fantastic tap dancers young and old, hearfelt singers, and a hugely tasty jazz trio providing expert accompaniment. One of the best Goldstar events I have attended(I've done 150 or more).
Google and YouTube Jeni Le Gon to learn of her amazing life.
Jeni LeGon (August 14, 1916 – December 7, 2012) was an American dancer, dance instructor, and actress. She was one of the first African-American women to establish a solo career in tap. Ms. LeGon was the rare female tapper who distinguished herself as a solo performer in the first half of the 20th century.
