Eclipse had Victoria Horne in the studio yesterday. Victoria just got back from Thailand, where she was singing and performing at the Bamboo Bar at the Hotel Manderin Oriental Bangkok. William Hurt, (an actor who was filming a movie in Thailand in March) was a guest there, and he heard Victoria sing along with a Russian Jazz Quartet.
Jessie Jackson Passed throught the halls, and heard Victoria singing and stopped in at the Bamboo Bar for a moment to listen. Jesse gave her a hello sign.
