Singer Natalie Cole Hospitalized

Singer Natalie Cole has been hospitalized in New York City. The eight-time Grammy Award winner has suffered a setback in her treatment for Hepatitis C, reports ‘People’ magazine. Side effects of her chemotherapy treatment for the liver disease, coupled with a hectic promotional schedule in support of her just-released new album are reportedly what lead to Cole’s hospitalization. The ‘This Will Be’ singer, 58, was diagnosed with the liver disease in April and has been free of the hepatitis C virus since starting treatment this summer. Her doctors believe she contracted the virus 25 years ago when she abused heroin, which she documented in her best-selling memoir ‘Angel On My Shoulder,’ which was made into an NBC telepic. According to her rep, she will return to her home in Los Angeles in the coming days and will be on a month-long bed rest so she can recuperate.

All current performances are postponed.

  1. Thank you god that’s one desire I’m so blessed not to have. Get well soon Ms. Cole. To: Amy, you better calm down.

  2. I can’t believe she is 58..I saw her in a video recently and she doesn’t look a day over 40. I hope that she sees a speedy recovery and continued success with her career.

  3. Prayers to Nat, I hope she gets better soon. Somtimes those old decisions come back to haunt you, Neverthe less, her life is doing well. I hope she gets better soon, I don’t want to lose her.

  4. Ms Cole all of your fans wish you well and we hope you have a healthy and speedy recovery so you can bless us with your truly gifted voice once again. May God continue to bless you and please get well soon.

  5. One time, me and my wife were in Las Vegas. Me and my wife made it a point to go see Natalie Cole perform live at the Las Vegas Hilton Hotel. She did her version of “Unforgetable” were she sings along with a video of her dad as he sings “Unforgetable”. Her voice was so smooth, so soft, so heavenly. Please y’all, join me as I pray for Natalie Cole and her healing and for comfort and strength for her family.

  6. I’m praying for you Natalie! I too am suffering the “side effects” of treatment for hepC. It’s TUFF, sister, and when I heard you were hospitalized my heart felt for you, but I’m so proud of you for taking the steps to a healthier life and really hope you come out on the other side, better than ever!

  7. My prayers are with Ms. Cole for her recovery and strength. And that God continues to bless her for speaking about her past in her book and more recently about her illness. I can testify and often have to many young people, that the decisions we make in our youth can have long term and devasting effects on our adult lives.
    I love her music, always have. Now I truly admire her as an honest and outspoken woman.
    God Speed, Natalie
