Photo Coverage: The New York Pops Honor Nat King Cole

The New York Pops, led by Music Director and Conductor Steven Reineke, paid tribute to Nat King Cole's centennial with Unforgettable: Celebrating Nat King Cole and Friends on Friday, February 8 at Carnegie Hall.

The orchestra was joined by guest artists Nikki Renée Daniels (Broadway's The Book of Mormon, The Gershwins' Porgy and Bess), and three-time Grammy Award nominee Ryan Shaw for songs that Nat King Cole popularized, and songs by those he inspired including "When I Fall In Love," "Almost Like Being In Love," "What'll I Do," "Embraceable You," "Smile," and "Unforgettable".

BroadwayWorld was there and you can check out the photos below!
