You love Nat King Cole's legendary holiday hits, and you're hearing them now on 104-5 KDAT. But there was so much more to this crooner.

His unforgettable sound and style are being re-created, although in his own words, not imitated by performer Evan Tyrone Martin this Thursday night at the Paramount Theatre in downtown Cedar Rapids.

A mix of the holiday sounds will blend with classics like "Unforgettable", "Mona Lisa" and many more. While no one can match the vocal stylings of the late singer himself, as you can see by the clip below, Evan Tyrone Martin does a great job.

Again, he says he's not trying to "imitate" Cole, according to the Gazette. The 35-year-old with a wealth of musical and theatre experience brings this tribute to the Five Flags Center in Dubuque Wednesday night as well. Visit the Paramount Theatre website for more details.
