Natalie Cole, singer and daughter of Nat ‘King’ Cole, dies at 65

Grammy winning singer Natalie Cole, the daughter of jazz legend Nat “King” Cole who carried on his musical legacy, with hits like “This Will Be (An Everlasting Love)” and “Unforgettable,” has died at age 65.

Cole’s 1991 album, “Unforgettable … With Love,” sold some 14 million copies and won six Grammys. It featured reworked versions of some of her father’s best-known songs.

Publicist Maureen O’Connor says Cole died Thursday night. The cause of death was reportedly congestive heart failure and other natural causes.

Cole had battled drug problems and hepatitis that forced her to undergo a kidney transplant in May 2009.
