Natalie Cole

Scribe: N. Tru Bass


Soul and jazz music virtuoso, Natalie Cole is dead. On 31 December 2015 the angels reached down to pluck the “Our Love” singer from our midst.

Her life can be described as passionate and personal as she struggled with demons as often as she sounded like an audible divine messenger. She was the daughter of the late great Nat King Cole. Ms. Cole released four albums in 1970, shooting her to the top of the R&B charts earning her two platinum albums and many Grammy Awards.

She later delved into the Jazzosphere – where her world class voice again served her to reach the top of the charts although many critics claimed she was the most underrated singer in modern jazz. In a revolutionary step in 1991she recorded 'Unforgettable' which included the title song that was remixed to inculcate his voice posthumously along with her sultry soprano sound.

In 1976 she recorded 'This will be,' the following year Cole recorded the funky hit, 'Sophisticated Lady' and I would be remiss to leave out the 1978, baby making 'I've Got Love on My Mind.'

In 1950, on 6 February the Cole's welcomed little Natalie, she was born in Los Angeles, California at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, 65-years later she died at the same medical center of congestive heart failure, brought on by kidney disease. She canceled several performances citing health issues during the month of December. She died on New Years eve according to family members.

Natalie Cole's incomparable voice will never be duplicated.
