Natalie Cole is an award winning R&B and jazz vocalist, the daughter of the late noted performer Nat King Cole. The younger Cole made her own musical debut in the mid-1970s, but succumbed to a drug addiction that sidelined her for a few years in the early ’80s. Over the course of her career, she has released nearly 30 studio and compilation albums, of which many of the earlier releases achieved Gold or Platinum status. To date, her best-selling and most popular work has been 1991’s “Unforgettable…With Love,” mainly comprised of covers of her father’s songs. In 2008, Cole was diagnosed with Hepatitis C, possibly as a result of her earlier drug abuse. She continued touring, even undergoing dialysis on the road, until receiving a kidney transplant in 2009. Cole’s national concerts are regularly booked for Performing Arts Centers across the U.S., though she also books overseas engagements.
