Breaking: Natalie Cole Dies Aged 65

Published: Friday 1st Jan 2016 by Sam

Sad news.

Renown singer/songwriter Natalie Cole has passed away – it has been confirmed.

Full story below…

Via TMZ:

Cole, whose hits include “This Will Be” and “Unforgettable” which she performed as a virtual duet with dad Nat King Cole — died from congestive heart failure, although we’re told the underlying medical issues were complications from a kidney transplant and Hepatitis C.

Natalie had been very sick recently, cancelling several tour dates in late December including a New Year’s Eve concert at Disney Hall in L.A. She also cancelled an upcoming February concert due to illness.

Natalie struggled with substance abuse and was plagued with health problems, suffering from liver disease in 2008. She also underwent chemo for Hepatitis C.

Natalie, who was married 3 times and has a son, was 65.

She died in a Los Angeles hospital.

Our thoughts go out to her family.

      Buffoon. If you truly ignorant to this icon, then just be quiet. You don’t say “who?” when someone dies. And trust me, more people know her than you…and more people will remember and celebrate her legacy than they will yours when you expire, so just shut up.

        No one knows you. When you die, you’ll be lucky to get a mention at the bottom of the obits section of a free neighborhood newspaper. Hush.

    Natalie Cole was absolutely amazing!The last of the great Jazz female vocalist.
    She started out as a Aretha clone of the early 70’s and ended up really carving her own path aside from those comparisons and out of her father’s shadow.None of her R&B peers could sing Jazz as well she could not Aretha,Chaka,Diana..none
    RIP Queen Natalie!! Thanks for leaving us with great material to remember you by!

    RIP Natalie! She had such a great spirit! Every time I’ve seen her being interviewed she appeared to have such a zest for life and bubbly personality. I don’t know why, but I tell she was a genuine person. There was something welcoming about her! I just appreciate her time being here and I hope she died happy. It’s really sad to see so many legends go these days!
