On Saturday night I went to the shiny new Park Plaza Westminster Bridge to see the legendary Natalie Cole perform.

Natalie wowed the audience with her amazing vocals, energy and glamour (she was dressed in a short sparkly dress, big statement earrings and the ultimate accessory of a glittering microphone!)

It’s no surprise that a woman who knew Frank Sinatra as “Uncle Frank” knows how to put on a good show and Natalie received a standing ovation. She worked her way through classics and covered songs by some of the greats including Ella Fitzgerald and Dinah Washington.

Celebrity spot of the night was Bruce Forsyth in the audience (he received a polite round of applause just for walking to his table!)

But the highlight of the evening was a “duet” of Unforgettable between Natalie Cole and her late father, Nat King Cole. Natalie sung live, while archive footage of Nat King Cole played on two big screens.

Next up at the Park Plaza Hotel Westminster Bridge is Paul Young on 11 December 2010.  £95 per ticket, includes four-course meal and concert. Book tickets.
