Acclaimed singer and daughter of an music legend, Natalie Cole, died on Thursday night, New Year’s Eve, at the age of 65. A nine-time Grammy winner, Ms. Cole struggled with substance abuse and other illnesses such as Hepatitis C, but remained open and honest about them.
Many music lovers will remember the now iconic duet Ms. Cole performed with her father Nat King Cole, which was recorded about 25 years after he died of lung cancer. Ms. Cole and her father belted out “Unforgettable” on our TV screens and sang straight to our hearts.
A queen of the 70s and 80s music scene, she gave us other hits such as “This Will Be” (1975). Many will recognize the song from the many movies and commercials that use it as the soundtrack.
Natalie Cole was active on social media and frequently posted about her charity work and causes, such as this one from June 1, 2015.
