Hollywood, Fla. (June 16, 2014) – Iconic performer, author and Hollywood Walk of Famer Natalie Cole will bring her legendary voice to Hard Rock Live at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Wednesday, November 5 at 8 p.m. Tickets are on sale, now.
First capturing acclaim with her debut 1975 album "Inseparable," Cole electrified audiences with her No. 1 single "This Will Be (An Everlasting Love)" and earned her first two Grammy Awards for Best New Artist and Best Female R&B Vocal Performance.
In 1976, she took home another Grammy for "Sophisticated Lady" and garnered strong radio play with other hits including "Jump Start (My Heart)," "I Live For Your Love" and her cover of Bruce Springsteen's "Pink Cadillac."
Another milestone came in 1991 with the release of "Unforgettable…With Love," featuring a duet with her late father Nat King Cole. The album spent five weeks at No. 1 on the pop charts, earned six Grammy Awards including Album of the Year, Record of the Year and Best Traditional Pop Performance, and sold more than 14 million copies worldwide.
Five years later she gave the world another duet with her father on "When I Fall in Love," from her platinum-selling album "Stardust," winning yet another Grammy for Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals. For her 2008 album "Still Unforgettable," Natalie took home her ninth Grammy for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album and an NAACP Award for Best Jazz Artist.
Cole also starred as herself in the 2001 biopic "Livin' for Love: The Natalie Cole Story," based on her autobiography, "Angel on My Shoulder," which detailed her harrowing effort to overcome drug addiction. The role earned her an NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Actress in a Television Movie, Mini-Series or Dramatic Special.
She also starred in Delbert Mann's "Lily in Winter," co-starred with Laurence Fishburne and Cicely Tyson in "Always Outnumbered" and played dramatic roles on several television series such as "Law and Order" and "Touched by an Angel."
As an author, Cole continued to share her challenges, releasing a second memoir in 2010 titled "Love Brought Me Back," which chronicles her quest for a kidney transplant. Today she serves as spokesperson for the University Kidney Research Organization, a nonprofit supporting research related to the prevention, treatment and eradication of kidney disease.
Her recent accolades include reaching No. 1 on the Latin charts for her first Spanish album "Natalie Cole En Español," which garnered three 2014 Latin Grammy nominations including Album of the Year, Record of the Year and Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album.
Natalie Cole is the daughter of the legendary Nat King Cole and former Duke Ellington Orchestra vocalist Maria Hawkins Cole.
