The great Natalie Cole has passed away. She was 65. 

Reports TMZ:

Cole, who’s hits include “This Will Be” and “Unforgettable” which she performed as a virtual duet with dad Nat King Cole — had sick recently, cancelling several tour dates in late December.  She also cancelled an upcoming February concert due to illness.

Natalie struggled with substance abuse and was plagued with health problems, suffering from liver disease in 2008.  She ended up getting a transplant.  She also contracted Hepatitis C, for which she underwent chemo. 

Rest in power Natalie Cole.
