We lost a very talented performer today.
Natalie Cole died of congestive heart failure. Natalie has been suffering from a variety of health issues in the past few years and it has caused her to cancel some of her live performances. Although she was getting better, she was still taking some time to rest

Natalie had an amazing career, winning nine Grammys and other major awards. She also had a drug addiction back in the 70s and early 80s, but she did move past that to become a very powerful entertainer and performer.
Natalie will be greatly missed. We will always be thankful for her and the music.
