Nat King Cole and Ten Other Musicians Who Sang After Death

Cole had a career resurgence back in 1991 when she released an album of duets with her father, Nat King Cole, titled Unforgettable... With Love. The quality that made that album both a Grammy winner and chart-busting success was that by 1991, Nat King Cole had been dead for 26 years.

Here are ten other dearly departed artists who managed to sing with the living from the afterlife.
