DEF: Natalie Cole “Everlasting”

As you have likely heard by now, Los Angeles-born singer Natalie Cole, the daughter of legendary singer Nat “King” Cole who went on to have a very successful popular music career of her own, died Thursday at the age of 65. Amid appearances on Billboard‘s Hot 100 chart ranging from the mid-1970s to the mid-1990s, Natalie Cole hit the Top 40 twelve times and the Top 10 five times. Cole’s most successful album in terms of producing Hot 100 hits was her 1987 release Everlasting, from which she scored Top 20 hits with “Jump Start,” “I Live For Your Love,” and her cover of Bruce Springsteen’s “Pink Cadillac” that tied for the highest-charting hit of her career by reaching number 5. The title track from that album didn’t appear on the Hot 100, though it’s title may summarize the power of Cole’s voice effectively. As such, in memory of Natalie Cole, her song “Everlasting” is today’s Daily Eighties Flashback.
