Music icon Natalie Cole has passed away.

The “This Will Be” singer died Thursday night at a Los Angeles hospital “due to complications from ongoing health issues.”

“Natalie fought a fierce, courageous battle, dying how she lived … with dignity, strength and honor,” the singer’s son and sisters said in a statement. “Our beloved mother and sister will be greatly missed and remain unforgettable in our hearts forever.”

Natalie, daughter of jazz great Nat King Cole, battled health problems for years, including hepatitis C, which she blamed on past intravenous drug use. She was 65.

“As the new year was ushered in, an angelic instrument moved on,” singer Lenny Kravitz wrote about Natalie’s passing on Instagram. “Natalie Cole’s voice was perfection. And what a lady.”

Our prayers go out to her friends and family.
