U is for Unforgettable. Natalie & Nat King Cole - Unforgettable (1992 The Unforgettable Concert )


YouTube link

When I was little, my parents had Nat King Cole's album. I loved his songs and his voice. For those who don't know, Nat died way to young from lung cancer. He was a chain smoker. When Natalie Cole came out with this dual, I loved it immediately.

Next week my plot series will continue. If you are trying to figure out which plot your using or which one you want to use check this series out. Previous plot post can be found under plot. Next week's master plot is: The Riddle

If you missed the book trailer that my daughter did for my new ya fantasy short story it's below. Please check it out and head to YouTube to like it. Thanks. 

Have a good day.

I checked out your trailer, well more than once, then I went to your daughters and became a follower on her blog.

That father-daughter duet is a classic, unforgettable in so many ways. It's a beautiful rendition.

Cannot do much better than the Cole family :) I should have thought of the video thing.

I grew up listening to Nat King Cole LPs on my grandparents turntable and trying to sing like him. Unfortunately, as I grew up I sang tenor, but it's the thought that counts. LOL Thank you for sharing. :)

So sad to lose such an unforgettable man to lung cancer.
My favorite Nat King Cole story is the one of his first gig. I don't remember where it was, but, when he sat down at the piano, he was told to sing as he played. He was shocked. "But I don't sing," he said, "I play piano." He was told to sing anyway, and the rest is history.
Love the man!

Nat King Cole's voice was velvet, pure velvet. I saw this concert too and felt so sad for Natalie, what a sad, sweet moment.
