Nat King Cole’s Daughters Celebrate the Music Legend’s 100th Birthday: ‘He Touched the Soul’

With the death of their sister Natalie Cole on New Year’s Eve 2015, twins Timolin and Casey Cole, 57, have inherited the responsibility of carrying on the legacy of their father Nat King Cole, the legendary jazz singer and pianist.

“We assume the authority of honoring and preserving our father and the rest of the Cole family legacy,” Timolin told PEOPLE Sunday at The Breakers Palm Beach during a Nat King Cole Generation Hope event to celebrate what would have been their father’s 100th birthday on March 17.

“We know mom and dad and our siblings are cheering us on. They are the angels guiding and encouraging us to continue expanding access to quality music by helping school children with the greatest need and fewest resources.”

Nat’s brother Freddy Cole, 87, who was nominated for a Grammy Award earlier this year for “Best Jazz Vocal Album”, entertained guests with his lyrical storytelling and his musical trio.

Nat, who died in 1965 of lung cancer at age 45, was one of the most popular and talented recording and concert artists in American history.
