Natalie Cole Tickets for Sale

Natalie Cole (born 6 February 1950) is an American singer/songwriter. The daughter of celebrated crooner Nat King Cole, she was exposed to the greats of Jazz, Soul and Blues at an early age and began performing at the age of 11. Her debut album in 1975, Inseparable, won her immediate praise, but it is probably her 1990 album, Unforgettable ... With Love, featuring her own arrangements of her father's greatest hits that gave her the most success. That album featured a duet with him, created by splicing a recording of his vocals into the track.

The daughter of jazz and pop legend Nat "King" Cole, Natalie Cole has forged a successful career in two phases, doing R&B/urban contemporary and then jazz-based pop. She made her stage debut at age 11 and sang in college. Cole met the writing and producing team of Chuck Jackson and Marvin Yancey in 1973. The next year they collaborated on some sessions that were recorded at Curtis Mayfield's Curtom studios in Chicago. These helped her land a deal with Capitol, and she teamed with Jackson/Yancey for a string of hit albums and singles from 1975 until 1983 that yielded five number one R&B hits including "This Will Be, "Inseparable," "Our Love," and "I've Got Love on My Mind." She scored more hits with "Jump Start," "I Live for Your Love," and "Over You" in 1987, and "Pink Cadillac," a cover of a Bruce Springsteen tune, in 1988, and then made her stylistic shift. Cole eased into the transition with "When I Fall in Love," a number her father recorded in 1957. It was included on her 1987 LP, Everlasting. She fully embraced the move with the 1991 LP Unforgettable with Love, earning Grammy awards and landing a number-one pop album that eventually sold over five million copies.

By the late-'80s she had cleaned up her act and made a comeback, initially doing similar work as in the '70s. But in '91 came her great breakthrough, an electronically managed reunion with her deceased father on "Unforgettable." After that her stardom was clinched, and she's continued as both a mature singer of ballads and a convincing exponent of the standard jazz/pop repertoire with a wonderfully well-trained and expressive voice. The comeback may have seemed like a gimmick, but her subsequent efforts have shown that she could make it on her own.
