“The newest in the line of sexily…[Black] nightclub performers, represented by Hazel Scott and Lena Horne, is a French chanteuse named Cecile Moumoune de Rivel Jean-Louis and more conveniently called Moune Rivel. More beautiful than Scott and more bosomy than Horne, Moune is less sensational than either as a performer. She makes her biggest hit at New York’s Cafe Society Uptown with her mother’s Guadeloupan creole songs.”- Life Magazine(1946)
