Nathaniel Adams Coles (March 17, 1919 – February 15, 1965), known professionally as Nat King Cole, was an American singer and musician who first came to prominence as a leading jazz pianist. He owes most of his popular musical fame to his soft, baritone voice, which he used to perform in big band and jazz genres.

Cole was one of the first African Americans to host a television variety show, The Nat King Cole Show, and has maintained worldwide popularity since his death from lung cancer in February 1965.

Nathaniel Adams Coles was born in Montgomery, Alabama, on March 17, 1919. Coles had three brothers: Eddie, Ike, and Freddy, and a half-sister, Joyce Coles. Ike and Freddy would later pursue careers in music as well. When Cole was four years old, he and his family moved to Chicago, Illinois, where his father, Edward Coles, became a Baptist minister. Cole learned to play the organ from his mother, Perlina Coles, the church organist.

" Silent Night " (German: Stille Nacht, heilige Nacht ) is a popular Christmas carol , composed in 1818 by Franz Xaver Gruber to lyrics by Joseph Mohr in the small town of Oberndorf bei Salzburg , Austria. It was declared an intangible cultural heritage by UNESCO in 2011. [1] The song has been recorded by a large number of singers from every music genre. The version sung by Bing Crosby is the third best-selling single of all-time .

The song was first performed on Christmas Eve 1818 at St Nicholas parish church in Oberndorf , a village in the Austrian Empire on the Salzach river in present-day Austria. A young priest, Father Joseph Mohr, had come to Oberndorf the year before. He had written the lyrics of the song " Stille Nacht " in 1816 at Mariapfarr , the hometown of his father in the Salzburg Lungau region, where Joseph had worked as a co- adjutor . [2]

The melody was composed by Franz Xaver Gruber , schoolmaster and organist in the nearby village of Arnsdorf . Before Christmas Eve, Mohr brought the words to Gruber and asked him to compose a melody and guitar accompaniment for the Christmas Eve mass. [3] It is unknown what inspired Mohr to write the lyrics, or what prompted him to create a new carol. [2]

Annunzio Paolo Mantovani ( Italian pronunciation:  [anˈnuntsjo ˈpaːolo mantoˈvaːni] ) (15 November 1905 – 29 March 1980), [1] known as Mantovani , was an Anglo-Italian conductor , composer and light orchestra -styled entertainer with a cascading strings musical signature. The book British Hit Singles & Albums states that he was "Britain's most successful album act before the Beatles...the first act to sell over one million stereo albums and [have] six albums simultaneously in the US Top 30 in 1959". [2]

Mantovani was born in Venice , Italy, into a musical family. His father, Bismarck, served as the concertmaster of La Scala opera house's orchestra in Milan , under the baton of Arturo Toscanini . The family moved to England in 1912, where young Annunzio studied at Trinity College of Music in London. After graduation, he formed his own orchestra, which played in and around Birmingham . He married Winifred Moss in 1934, and they had two children: Kenneth (born 12 July 1935) and Paula Irene (born 11 April 1939). By the time World War II broke out, his orchestra was one of the most popular British dance bands , both on BBC radio broadcasts and in live performances. [3]

Similarly, Mantovani Plays Music From 'Exodus' and Other Great Themes made it to the Top Ten in 1961, with over one million albums sold. [4]
