The first black singing cowboy in Hollywood, 'Bronze Buckaroo' star Herb Jeffries, has passed away of heart failure at the age of 100.

Jeffries was also a part of Duke Ellington orchestras in the 1940's, where the 1941 standard 'Flamingo' made it to the pop-charts' top 20.

The blue-eyed singer was inducted into the Western Performers Hall of Fame at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum in 2004.
