6. Natalie Cole (2009)
When R&B artist Natalie Cole, daughter of the legendary Nat King Cole, appeared with the Tabernacle Choir in 2009 with co-guest David McCullough, she already had nine Grammy Awards and 21 Grammy nominations.
Cole was inspired by the choir and shared, “There’s nothing that happens in my life that I believe that [God] hasn’t had something to do with. I will be taking some wonderful memories of this weekend. It really has been great.” She added, “The wonderful arrangements, working with Mack [Wilberg], this wonderful orchestra, the choir and their dedication—I mean, it’s really every singer’s dream to be able to come to an environment like this and to work this way.” Cole passed away in 2015 at age 65.
In 2009's The Most Wonderful Time of the Year, the Choir was joined by none other than multiple Grammy-award winner Natalie Cole. Ms. Cole's trademark vocal style paired with the Choir's legendary sound makes for a stunning collection destined to become a new Christmas classic.
