She’s ‘unforgettable’ 

Natalie Cole sings for SuperPops! on Sunday.

NATALIE COLE: Pops star.
  • NATALIE COLE: Pops star.
Natalie Cole has long since proved she’s more than just Nat’s daughter. Her incomparable style has graced 20 of her own albums, and she was paid perhaps her highest compliment this past year: being among the leading pop, jazz and R&B singers invited to duet with Ray Charles on his Grammy Award-winning album “Genius Loves Company.” Cole will perform with the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra at the Acxiom-sponsored SuperPops! concert at 7 p.m. Sunday, April 3, at Robinson Center Music Hall. Tickets range from $31 for the back of the balcony to $126 for the choicest seats. Call 666-1761. Cole has charted 30 singles since her debut in 1975 with “This Will Be” and “I’ve Got Love on My Mind” (from the double Grammy-winning album “Inseparable”) and she made an indelible impression on both her fans and her father’s with the “duet” of “Unforgettable” that won several Grammy Awards. The 1991 album “Unforgettable, With Love” sold 14 million copies worldwide. Most recently, Cole appeared in the film “De-Lovely” based on the life of Cole Porter, and her latest album is 2002’s “Ask a Woman Who Knows,” which reunited her with her favorite producer, Tommy LiPuma, for a selection of jazz and soulful pop songs. Throughout her career, she’s taken classics sung by such legends as Dinah Washington, Ella Fitzgerald and Sarah Vaughan and made them her own, along with putting an electrifying sound to more contemporary works.
