Natalie Cole

After the release of Unforgettable…with Love, Cole regularly incorporated pop standards into her albums and performances, finding success with albums like Stardust (1996) and Ask a Woman Who Knows (2002). In addition to her prolific work as a recording artist, Cole also penned two memoirs and flourished as an actress—even playing herself in a dramatic, award-winning performance in Livin' for Love: The Natalie Cole Story, based on her first autobiography, Angel on My Shoulder. Over the course of her storied and inspiring 40-year career, Cole released a total of 23 studio albums, with over 30 million copies sold, worldwide.
