Mariah Carey Touches Hearts with her Memorable Photo of Natalie Cole

| January 2, 2016 | 0 Comments


Mourning of devastation, Mariah Carey pays homage to R&B songstress Natalie Cole by posting a touching photo with the legendary soul singer.

Natalie Cole, daughter of legendary jazz musician Nat King Cole, took her last breathe after battling several health complications on New Year’s Eve. The 65-old-crooner was widely known for her hit singles “This Will Be,” “I’ve Got Love on My Mind” and a duet with her late father for “Unforgettable.”


Mariah Casey shared a photo worth 1,000 words earlier on Instagram with Cole grasping her face while holding it gently as if she was her seed. Smiling warm in the photo, Carey’s instagram caption read:

“Beyond devastated to hear about the passing of the beautiful and talented Natalie Cole. My deepest condolences to her family and all who were blessed to know her. She will be truly missed.”

The Grammy award-winning singer who’s had music all throughout her veins proved to be a musician of jazz, pop and blues taken from her father’s baritone influence. Many have looked to her as bridging the gap in soul between her father’s generation and merely modern sounds.

Recently in March of 2015, Cole surprisingly hit the stage in Fisher Hall, New Year celebrating the legacy of Paul Newnan.

According to a few other great figures such as Aretha Franklin, Patti Labelle and Arsenio Hall have mentioned Natalie Cole’s great influence.

“I am sorry to hear about Natalie Cole’s passing,” Franklin mentions. “I had to hold back the tears. I know how hard she fought. She fought for so long. She was one of the greatest singers of our time. She represented the Cole legend of excellence and class quite well.”

“In college, I named my bass guitar Natalie,” Hall reflects. “As a young stand up comic I opened for Natalie Cole. She was all that, in all ways! (RIP ).”

“Sending prayers and condolences to all the loved ones of my friend Natalie Cole,” Labelle says, “She will be truly missed but her light will shine forever!”
