Nat King Cole
Nat King Cole was one of the earliest and most famous black cross-over artists who gained a huge national and international following with such popular songs as “Mona Lisa,” “When I Fall In Love”, “Unforgettable”, “Too Young” “Straighten Up and Fly Right”, and “Pretend”. Nat King Cole broke through major racial barriers in the entertainment industry as the first black American to have his own national radio show and the first black American to have his own television show. In 1946, Nat started doing a radio show every week. He would play for half an hour on Saturday afternoon, from whatever town he was doing concerts in. The radio show lasted for 4 years. Nat also appeared in quite a few movies. The best known of these is St Louis Blues in which he played the role of the jazz composer W.C. Handy. He was one of the first people to make records with Capitol Records. He eventually appeared in a film about himself called The Nat King Cole Story. He appeared in the Ed Sullivan Show and performed in Las Vegas. He sold over 50 million records. He passed away at a very young age in 1965.
