Natalie Cole, 1950-2015

Natalie Cole, the American singer who overcame battles with substance abuse and the long shadow of her famous father to earn worldwide success of her own, has died. She was 65. Cole died on New Year’s Eve at Cedar Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles “due to complications from ongoing health issues,” according to a statement from her family.

“It is with heavy hearts that we bring to you all the news of our Mother and sister’s passing.
