R&B Legend Natalie Cole Has Passed Away




Legendary R&B singer Natalie Cole has passed away.


Daughter of soul crooner Nat King Cole, Natalie joined the family business and made her own mark in the industry, releasing several hit songs including hits like ‘This Will Be’, ‘Pink Cadillac’, and a re-working of her father’s hit song as a duet, ‘Unforgettable’. The Reverend Jesse Jackson issued a statement in behalf of the family…


“Natalie Cole, sister beloved & of substance and sound. May her soul rest in peace.”





Cole, who won nine Grammy Awards, had a storied history of health issues and substance abuse over her long career. Recently, she had to cancel several appearances due to hepatitis C, which she contracted from earlier drug abuse.



Natalie Cole was 65 years old.
