RIP Natalie Cole

New Year's Eve we lost Natalie Cole
R&B singer Natalie Cole, whose hits included “This Will Be” and “Unforgettable,” a virtual duet that she sang with her late father Nat “King” Cole, has died. The Associated Press reported she died Thursday night at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.
After a long dry spell, Cole staged a comeback with the 1991 album “Unforgettable…With Love,” which included the duet on the ballad “Unforgettable” with her father, a jazz legend turned pioneering African-American pop hit maker who died in 1965.

Natalie Cole’s voice was blended with her father’s classic 1950s rendition of “Unforgettable” for a hit that spent 17 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The two also appeared together in a video assembled from old footage of Nat “King” Cole for the song that was widely seen that year.
