After some of her albums proved unsuccessful, she reinvented herself and had a comeback that brought her to the top of the charts. And though she battled with heavy drug addiction, she marked a clean return and even advocated against drug use in the music industry.

A passionate singer who connected emotionally with her songs, Natalie Cole was a versatile performer throughout her career, singing styles that included R&B, pop, and jazz, among others. She died Thursday in Los Angeles at age 65.

Some of her best work:

-- "This Will Be" (1975)

-- "Inseparable" (1975)

-- "I've Got Love On My Mind" (1977)

-- "Our Love" (1977)

-- "Someone That I Used to Love" (1980)

-- "Jump Start" (1987)

-- "I Live for Your Love" (1987)

-- "Pink Cadillac" (Bruce Springsteen cover) (1987)

-- "Miss You Like Crazy" (1989)

-- "Unforgettable" (with Nat King Cole) (1991)
