(1950) may be the child of a legendary artist but her career would undoubtedly have flourished even without the legacy of her father Nat ‘King’ Cole. Having no fewer than nine Grammys to her name is proof of the singer’s impressive talent. At an early age she had hits with songs like This Will Be
, Our Love
and I've Got Love On My Mind.
Albums like Natalie, Thankful
were also early successes. In 1988, Cole switched to a different style with her hit Pink Cadillac
and she afterwards rediscovered the beauty of classic standards with albums like Stardust
and Still Unforgettable
. Her album Natalie Cole En Español
was released quite recently and on it she worked with various artists including Andrea Bocelli and Arturo Sandoval. On Acércate Más
Cole she sings a posthumous duet with her father. The Spanish-language album delivered her three Grammy nominations.
