“I’m so very proud that this record has been accepted in this way. With these nominations alone we have made history. I hope this is the kind of inspiration that will give other artists the courage to step out and follow their creative dreams. I owe so much of this to my producer, Rudy Perez.”
– Natalie Cole, reacting to news of her three LATIN GRAMMY nominations today

Produced By Rudy Perez, Natalie Cole en Español Includes Duets With Juan Luis Guerra, Andrea Bocelli And Nat King Cole, As Well As Musical Collaborations With Famed Instrumentalists Chris Botti, Arturo Sandoval & Arthur Hanlon

“Always a singer of impeccable taste, Natalie Cole takes on Spanish-language classics with the same elegance and warmth that distinguished her recordings of American standards. Rudy Perez’s production never overwhelms her delicate approach.”


“The chart success of Cole’s first all Spanish-language production recalls Nat ‘King’ Cole’s ‘Español’ recordings from the late fifties and sixties, international hits in their time which are still cherished by Spanish-speaking fans. Natalie Cole’s album includes some of the same classic songs, including ‘Acércate Más,’ by Cuban composer Osvaldo Farrés, performed as a father-daughter digital duet. ‘Natalie Cole en Español’ also tops the Latin Pop Albums chart. The album’s tropical vibe breezes through big band arrangements of mainstays like Bésame Mucho and ‘Quizás, Quizás, Quizás,’ and is enhanced by the inclusion of ‘Bachata Rosa,’ in duet with Juan Luis Guerra”
