During a tribute that Natalie did to her father in 1992, she got onstage saying that she would honor a man who needed no introduction. The lady was wearing a glittering dress used a jewel-encrusted microphone.

When the music started, the screens behind Natalie portrayed a video of Nat singing to “Unforgettable,” a song he released in 1951 for his album with the same name.

The man passed away in 1965, almost four decades before the show took place. Thankfully, Natalie found a way to “bring him back” for one last presentation.

HIS PASSING

Unfortunately, Nat passed away when he was 45 years old. He started experiencing health issues one year before dying when he began to lose weight and experience back pain.

In December 1964, Nat finally listened to his friends’ advice and went to a hospital, where doctors discovered a malignant tumor on his left lung. Soon after being diagnosed with lung cancer, he died in February 1965.

NATALIE'S PASSING

Natalie also died at a young age – 65 – on December 31, 2015, due to congestive heart failure. The singer was diagnosed with idiopathic pulmonary arterial hypertension soon after having a kidney transplant in 2009. Her previous intravenous drug abuse played a factor, too.
