And yes, she sang this song tonight. With her Dad.
I had hoped that she would sing this number in
concert tonight at the Eastman Theatre, Rochester, NY.
And she did. The screen dropped down quietly, and
there was Nat King Cole, backing up his daughter
Natalie Cole. This duet absolutely brought big
tears to my eyes.
Nat King Cole has been one of my all-time favorites
since I was a kid. Natalie Cole was the Eastman's
first concert for the 10th Rochester International Jazz Festival.
Miss Cole walked elegantly onto the stage, and began
singing nonstop. I have to say that Miss Cole is smooth
like velvet. No. Smoother. I could have sat for two more
hours and listened to her sing. Classy, classy lady, and
a performance of perfection.
So tonight, with my mother, cousin, her husband and
daughter all here from Texas,
I watched and listened to a wonderful concert,
and saw Nat and Natalie sing "Unforgettable" together.
And. Yes. It. Was!
