The remarkable talent of Nat King Cole will be celebrated in a show in Weston next month.

Unforgettable – the name of one of Cole’s biggest hits – is an apt description of the musical maestro’s talents and they will be remembered at The Playhouse in July.

Wayne Ellington Sings Nat King Cole sees the performer bring those glorious songs to life once more for a 2018 audience.

Cole’s career is almost beyond compare – more than 30 million records sold during his lifetime.

Like so many performers though, his life was cut short horrifically early, as he died at the age of 45 in the mid-1960s.

Cole, who was born in Alabama, however made his mark on the music scene like very few have before or since.

His ability to transcend generations means he remains much-loved more than half a century after his passing.

Cole’ late daughter Natalie brought her father’s music to new generation in the 1990s when her own newly recorded vocal track was added to her father’s 1961 stereo re-recording of his original 1951 Unforgettable hit.

Ellington will do more than justice to such an incredible career when he brings his wonderful tribute night to Weston on July 13.

The music show will start at the High Street venue at 7.30pm.

Tickets, priced £20, are available at www.theplayhouse.co.uk or on 01934 645544.
