Natalie Cole, who died New Year’s Eve, was slated to play in downtown Miami later this year.
The Adrienne Arsht Center said it would keep her scheduled April 8 appearance on its calendar, but was seeking a new performer to join the Christian McBride Trio that night as part of the center’s long-running Jazz Roots series.
“The Arsht center family expresses its condolences to the Cole family. We believe the world has lost an outstanding musical talent with the passing of Ms. Cole,” said Suzette Espinosa, the center’s vice president of public relations.
“The box office will be communicating to ticket holders,” Espinosa added.
The 65-year-old singer was known for hits like “This Will Be” and “Our Love” as well as her “Unforgettable” posthumous collaboration with her father, Nat King Cole. She died after battling a series of ongoing health issues.
The performing arts center asked that people who want to inquire about the April 8 show call 305-949-6722.
