Singer Natalie Cole, the daughter of jazz legend Nat King Cole who carried on his musical legacy, has died at the age of 65.

Cole died on Thursday night, publicist Maureen O’Connor said.

The singer had battled drug problems and hepatitis that forced her to undergo a kidney transplant in May 2009.

Cole’s 1991 album, Unforgettable … With Love, sold some 14 million copies and won six Grammys. It featured reworked versions of some of her father’s best-known songs.

On the title cut, Unforgettable, she sang along with her father’s taped version to create a memorable duet.

Nat King Cole died of lung cancer in 1965.
