Natalie Cole Dies at Age 65

Natalie Cole, a nineties Grammy-winning R& daughter of jazz icon Nat King Cole, has died at age 65.

She passed away on Thursday, New Year's Eve, at a Los Angeles hospital after suffering "complications from ongoing health issues," her son, Robert Yancy, and identical twin sisters, Timolin Cole and Casey Cole.

"It is with heavy hearts that we bring to you all the news of our Mother and sister's passing," they said. "Natalie fought a fierce, courageous battle, dying how she lived..with dignity, strength and honor. Our beloved Mother and sister will be greatly missed and remain UNFORGETTABLE in our hearts forever."

Natalie rose to fame in the mid-70s and released hit songs such as "This Will Be," "I've Got Love on My Mind," "Pink Cadillac," "Miss You Like Crazy" and a virtual duet of her father's signature song "Unforgettable." He died in 1965 at age 45.
