The new year is bringing with it some sad news as Natalie Cole has passed away. The iconic singer died on New Year's Eve at an LA area hospital following a lengthy sickness that prompted her to cancel several tour dates this past fall.

"It is with heavy hearts that we bring to you all the news of our Mother and sister's passing," the Cole family statement said. "Natalie fought a fierce, courageous battle, dying how she lived - with dignity, strength and honor. Our beloved Mother and sister will be greatly missed and remain UNFORGETTABLE in our hearts forever.”

The statement was signed by Cole's only child, Robert Yancey, and her twin sisters, Timolin and Casey Cole.
