Remembering Natalie Cole 1950 - 2015

Singer Natalie Cole, who died Thursday at age 65, won nine Grammy Awards and sold over 30 million records worldwide during her career. She received a 1992 Emmy nomination for Outstanding Individual Performance in a Variety or Music Program for the PBS special, Unforgettable, with Love: Natalie Cole Sings the Songs of Nat King Cole, and her television acting credits include appearances on I'll Fly Away (1993), Lily in Winter (1994 TV movie), Touched by an Angel (1995), Grey's Anatomy (2006) and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit (2006).
