Grammy winning singer, Natalie Cole, Dies at 65

The grammy winning singer, known for hits like “This will be”, “Unforgettable” and “Our love” dies at 65. The singer passed away in LA with congestive heart failure.

She was the daughter of Nat King Cole and had won 9 grammys since her career began in the 1970s.

The Executive producer of the Grammy awards Ken Ehrlich said that the singer had “one of those magical voices that grabbed you from the first note”

Natalie’s career started in the 70’s with a band called Black Magic. But her music disappointed many since she sang R&B and not her father’s Jazz songs, which were a favorite at the time.
