NEW YORK (AP) - Natalie Cole says she'll tour this summer with Whitney
Houston and Dionne Warwick.
"Yes, Whitney, Dionne Warwick and myself," the singer told Access Hollywood
in an interview to air Tuesday night. Excerpts were released in advance by
the syndicated entertainment TV show. "It starts in Germany in July. We're
going to have . . . a great, great time. It's going to be fun." Cole said
one reason she decided to do the tour is her close relationship with
"I said yes because that's my buddy," she said. "I've always thought of
Whitney as my little sister. I've known her since she was 19, and . . . I
feel really good that when they asked who she would want to be on the show
with her, she said me."
Cole said Houston is on the road to recovery after beginning treatment at a
drug rehabilitation centre in March.
"She's doing really great. She's a strong woman and she has a great desire
to really get healthy and get well, so I'm just really happy for her."
