Nat King Cole had a special gift of making what he did look so easy - always in control -always the master. His voice and his music had a universal appeal that was and continues to be of timeless quality. He will forever be recognized and celebrated for the trailblazer that he was in breaking down racial barriers and for his technical and stylistic contributions to the world of music.
While the arts were an integral part of the educational curriculum in his lifetime, today's youth are art starved. Recent national overall reports show that the percentage of children with access to music has declined 50% in the past five years. Studies also show that within two to three years every school that cut arts showed a decrease in morale and attendance and an increase in vandalism and disruption.
My twin sister, Casey and I believe our father, by right, has earned his place in history as a true American hero and legend through his contributions to the world of music. We therefore felt the time is right to launch Nat King Cole Generation Hope, Inc. with the goal of inspiring our youth while enriching their lives, through the power of music.
