LOS ANGELES — Natalie Cole, daughter of legendary musician Nat King Cole, has moved on to be with the Lord. She died on New Year’s Eve at the age of 65. Natalie had gotten sick recently, causing her to cancel several performances. Like her father, Natalie enjoyed a successful singing career — winning her first two Grammys with her 1975 album “Inseparable.” After stringing together a series of number one hits throughout the 70s, she earned a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 1979.
