It was a great musical moment. Natalie Cole used modern technology to sing with her late father. The result was a #1 album:
"Unforgettable: With Love marked a significant shift in both musical direction and career fortunes for Natalie Cole.
The album comprised 22 songs from the Nat King Cole catalog, including solo performances of "Route 66," "Mona Lisa," and "Straighten Up And Fly Right" as well as a "duet" between Natalie and her father on his biggest hit of all, "Unforgettable."
The skillful production work on "Unforgettable" may not have entirely removed the creepiness factor of a daughter singing with her dead father, but the song swept every eligible category in at the 1991 Grammy Awards: Song of the Year, Record of the Year and Best Traditional Pop Performance.
Its success on the radio also helped Unforgettable: With Love sell more than 8 million copies, win the Grammy for Album of the Year and, on this day in 1991, top the Billboard album charts."
