The Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza Foundation presents Natalie Cole in the Fred Kavli Theatre at 8:00 pm on Friday, November 16, 2012, her first appearance at the venue since December 1995. Tickets go on sale to the public on August 4, 2012 at 12:00 noon.
After rocketing to stardom in 1975 with her debut album, “Inseparable,” Natalie Cole’s star power continues to burn bright. This nine-time Grammy® winner, songwriter and performer remains one of the most beloved performers of our time.
When Cole’s seminal Unforgettable…With Love came out in 1991, the jazz collection set a new standard for reinventing the Great American Songbook. The CD, which captured six Grammys, including Album and Record of the Year, spent five weeks at No. 1 and sold more than eight million copies in the U.S. alone.
Yet instead of exploiting the moment and rushing out a second volume, Cole thoughtfully took a step back, devoted herself to several other stellar projects including her riveting autobiography, and waited until she felt ready to return to the songs that fulfill her heart and soul. Releasing Still Unforgettable on September 9, 2009 the album won two Grammys, one for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album and Best Instrumental Accompanying Vocalist. It also earned Cole a NAACP Award for Best Jazz Artist.
