Nat King Cole (Nathaniel Adams Coles) was born on March 17, 1919 and passed away on February 15, 1965. He first was known as a leading jazz pianist but went on to be widely noted and adored for his soft, baritone voice.
Cole was one of the first African Americans to host a television variety show, The Nat King Cole Show, and has maintained worldwide popularity since his death from lung cancer in February 1965.
Here is a live performance of Nat King Cole singing “Nature Boy.”
