|It's no wonder Natalie Cole turned to music given her father's legendary talent. She is the daughter of famed jazz and pop icon Nat King Cole, meaning Natalie had the ultimate coach when it came to starting her own career. Since rising to fame in the 1970s, the Los Angeles native has enjoyed a loyal fan following, and Natalie Cole tickets remain popular items.
As the daughter of legendary singer Nat King Cole, Natalie Cole had a lot to live up to, but thanks to her immense talent, that did not prove to be a problem. Natalie showed a passion for music from a young age, hitting the stage for the first time at age 11 and honing in on her skills even more during her time at college. Despite her father's name, Natalie strived to make a name for herself on her own, so she'd know people respected her for her talent, not just because of who her father was.
The singer linked up with writing and producing greats Chuck Jackson and Marvin Yancey in 1973. Thanks to their support, Natalie was signed to Capitol Records a year later - she cranked out many hit singles and albums from 1975 to 1983.
Cole's first big success came during the middle of the 1970s when she released a series of R&B hits that proved to be some of the best of the decade. In fact, her 1975 debut album, Inseparable, included some of her most well-known songs such as "This Will Be (An Everlasting Love)," which helped earn her the Grammy for Best New Artist. After such an auspicious debut, Cole's career was off and running.
Other popular records included 1977's Unpredictable and 1979's I Love You So. In 1983, Natalie parted ways with Capitol and linked up with Epic Records where she continued to make more hit music. The soulful crooner earned Grammy Awards and other accolades as well as a No. 1 pop album that sold more than 5 million copies.
While the 1980s proved less successful than the 70s, Cole came back in a big way in the 1990s. Her 1991 album Unforgettable...with Love, featured recordings of her famous father's best songs and was one of the most popular records released that year. It went on to sell millions of copies and eventually won Album of the Year at the Grammys.
In the years since Unforgettable, Natalie Cole has remained a staple of pop music, even capturing a Grammy in 2009. Her 2010 Christmas album, The Most Wonderful Time of the year, featured the The Tabernacle Choir. Like her father before her, Cole put out an all-Spanish album, En Espanol, released in 2013. The album joined artists Andrea Bocelli, Jaun Luis Guerra and Arturo Sandoval on her song "Acercate Mas (Come Closer to Me)."
