In the mid-'80s, after achieving substantial success with a wave of hits and collecting a gang of Grammys, Natalie Cole left behind disco and drugs and emerged as a pop artist. The daughter of late balladeer Nat King Cole, she finally embraced her legacy in 1991 with "Unforgettable: With Love," an album of her father's songs anchored by a posthumous duet. It sold more than 5 million copies, won Cole several more Grammys and sparked a somewhat spooky genre of pop music. Her recent career moves have been somewhat predictable -- an album of pop rehashes and loaning her hit "Everlasting" to eHarmony.com. The former can be forgiven. The latter can be redeemed only by a brilliant performance July 27, Fridays at Sunset, Kanawha Plaza, at 6 p.m. Art Sherrod and Tracy Retchin open. Tickets are $30.
