    Natalie Cole is a singer/songwriter from Los Angeles who rose to fame as an R&B artist during the 1970s. Daughter of jazz legend Nat King Cole and Duke Ellington Orchestra singer Maria Cole, she was exposed to prominent jazz and blues singers throughout her childhood. In 1972, Natalie graduated from the University of Massachusetts and moved to Chicago, where she began singing with a band called Black Magic at small clubs and venues. She eventually captured the attention of producers Chuck Jackson and Marvin Yancy, who brought her into a studio to record several tracks. After sending demos out to several potential labels, Natalie was turned down by all of them besides Capitol Records, her father's label, who offered her a contract. With her two producers, she went to Los Angeles to polish off her initial recordings that resulted in her debut album, Inseparable in 1975. The critically acclaimed album spawned two number one hits and earned Natalie a Grammy Award for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance. The album was constantly compared to the work of Aretha Franklin, who noted that many of the album's songs were originally offered to her, and when the media started dubbing Natalie the "new Aretha Franklin," a rivalry was sparked between the two prominent singers. Natalie's fame rose throughout the end of the 1970s with the release of two consecutive platinum albums, Unpredictable and Thankful, both release in 1977. Personal problems and drug habits starting in the 1980s caused a detour in her career, but she checked into a rehab facility in 1983 and returned to the top of the charts with her 1987 album Everlasting. Her best-selling album, 1991's Unforgettable... with Love, is a compilation of covers of her father's famous songs that features an iconic duet between Natalie and Nat King Cole of the title track. Natalie continues to release new recorded material, including her 2008 Grammy Award winning effort Still Unforgettable.

    Martina McBride is an American country music singer and songwriter. McBride has been called the "Céline Dion of Country Music" for her big-voiced ballads and soprano range.

    McBride was signed to RCA Records in 1991 and made her debut the following year as a neo-traditionalist country singer with the single, "The Time Has Come." It was not until 1997, when she released her fourth album, Evolution, that she broke through into the country music industry with a new pop-styled crossover sound, similar to that of Faith Hill and Shania Twain. From that point on, McBride has had a string of major hit singles on the Billboard country chart and occasionally on the adult contemporary chart. Five of these singles went to No. 1 on the country chart between 1995 and 2001, and one peaked at No. 1 on the adult contemporary chart in 2003.

    McBride has recorded a total of nine studio albums, one greatest hits compilation, one live album, a Christmas compilation, as well as two additional compilation albums. Seven of her studio albums and two of her compilations have received an RIAA certification of Gold, or higher. Worldwide, she has sold over 18 million albums. In addition, Martina has won the Country Music Association's "Female Vocalist of the Year" award four times (tied with Reba McEntire for the most wins), and the Academy of Country Music's "Top Female Vocalist" award three times.
