Her dad already got in as an influence. Spending 25 years singing over his hits doesn't make you Hall of Fame material. : )

How come this site has her at a 20% chance to get in? What has she done to deserve that high of a chance?

Rock hounds have little respect for R&B although they would be singing polka music without Black music. Natalie Cole is one of the greatest singers of the "Rock" era. As long as the Rock Hall includes Soul artist Natalie should be an inductee..

Charles, you bring up an interesting point, but I wonder, is Natalie really all that "soulful"? I give her mad props for her rendition of "Pink Cadillac." But I've always thought of her as more pop, rather than soul. But I won't completely rule her out either.

Natalie Cole has definitely paid her dues many times over and deserves to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. She has diversity from R&B, Pop, Rock, Jazz, Disco, Country, Funk, Gospel, and now Latin. She is a very Underrated Artist who is very soulful and has been very disrespected, and needs to finally get the credit that she deserves. It is a shame that she has not been inducted, and that is one of the reasons why I am boycotting The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame until she is inducted.

I was very saddened to hear about the recent passing of Natalie Cole. She was a phenomenal talent. My most sincere condolences to her family and friends. I will always remember her for her song, 'Wild Women Do,' from the "Pretty Woman" film.

Hi. Bill here.
I already started my tribute to Natalie on my blog on Charles' "Top Of The Charts" forum. Click on the above link to see it. Lots of live footage, videos of her hits, and even her 2001 bioflick, "Livin' for Love: the Natalie Cole Story" are included .

As someone had already mentioned, Her Dad, the legendary Nat "King" Cole, has already been inducted as an "Early Influence", but given the fact that the "Hallowed Hall" has been turning a deaf ear to Classic R&B artists in recent years, I'm not hopeful about Natalie's chances to join him.
After all, if heavy hitters like Chaka Khan, Janet Jackson, Dionne Warwick, The Pointer Sisters,and Patti LaBelle & The BlueBelles/ LaBelle, and Whitney Houston can't get inducted...
