The youngest twin daughters of music legend Nat King Cole, Timolin and Casey Cole of Boca Raton, launched Nat King Cole Generation Hope, Inc. in 2008 after learning of budget cuts in South Florida public schools directly affecting the arts. It was created to honor the legacy, music and life of their father Nat King Cole. Since that time, the organization has benefited nearly 5,000 children and has donated musical instruments and funds to 13 schools and community organizations in Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach Counties.
“Our father was a trail blazer in the music industry and true champion breaking down racial barriers. He will live forever through his style, grace and unforgettable music,” said Timolin Cole. “By enriching students with the opportunity to enhance their musical talents and abilities, our father’s legacy lives on.”
The concert will also include performances by American Idol Top 24 Semi-Finalist Brett Loewenstern, 10-year-old violin prodigy Brianna Kahane, and DJ Fono of Roundabout Records. The event will be emceed by Tania Rogers of WPTV-TV, Channel 5.
“In keeping with our father’s legacy, the concert will showcase generations of musical greatness,” said Casey Cole. “The Supremes’ legacy and impact is tremendous and we are so honored that Mary Wilson will contribute to the GENERATIONS concert. We are also delighted to feature young musical artists from our community, Brett and Brianna, who are shining examples of the importance of music education.”
