Celebrating… Nat “King” Cole

July 23 @ 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

$15 – $40

From the Chicago saloons to the studios of Hollywood (and countless theatres, dives and concert halls in between), Nat “King” Cole burnished a legacy of more than 150 Billboard-charting singles while selling more than 50 million records. He, in fact, topped the very first Billboard Best Selling Popular Record Albums chart. He shared that music, while inspiring America, as the first-ever black entertainer to host a variety series.

Cole’s illustrious catalogue of sensations, including Unforgettable, The Christmas Song, L-O-V-E, Straighten Up & Fly Right, When I Fall in Love, Mona Lisa, Stardust and Nature Boy.

Cole’s personal and professional achievements were unparalleled. Many of those triumphs remain unsurpassed. Forever altering the course of music, entertainment and the world, tonight we celebrate an icon whose star will never fade.

Celebrating… a century of piano virtuosity and uniquely lush vocal timber.
Celebrating… a century of trailblazing success as a pioneer of Pop music.
Celebrating… Nat “King” Cole.
