LEA--Barbara, of New York City and Raleigh, NC passed away on December 26, 2011. Singer, actress, writer, teacher, friend. You dedicated your life to championing the songs and writers who contributed to the Great American Songbook and you continue to serve as an inspiration to those who wish to follow in your footsteps. Through your recordings, radio programs and the memories of those who saw your live performances, your voice will never be stilled. A memorial will be held in New York City at a later date.
