This short read,narrated nicely by Alex L. Vincent,lead us on a journey through Mr. Coles life and times.It was very interesting to me to see just how people of color were treated in the 'old days',even if they were talented.I enjoyed listening to his story.

Nat does not do rock n' roll. This is what he told Natalie when she was in love with Elvis and wanted her father to sing rock n' roll. 'Along with Sinatra, he was the most successful artist of his generation.'
"The Christmas Song", "Route 66", and "Unforgettable" were a few of his most notable songs especially when Natalie accompanied him posthumously in "Unforgettable." He was a jazz pianist and went into the pop genre and began a parallel career. He was considered the African-American counterpart to Bing Crosby. He was also in several films.
I grew up listening to Nat King Cole and I think we had all his albums. He was my dad's favorite artist. This audiobook was a great listen and was extremely moving as I didn't know he had been attacked for the color of his skin. I never knew this and learning of this made me cry. This was a man who brought so much joy into the lives of so many people.
Alex L. Vincent did a great job narrating this audiobook. He spoke clearly and had a good pace as well as a nice tone. He made this a nice, pleasant listen. I would definitely recommend listening to this book. I wish it had been longer.
