The Kennedy Center and Georgetown University are honoring the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. with a free concert featuring Natalie Cole.

Cole's career in pop music spans more than four decades. The daughter of music legend Nat King Cole has won nine Grammy Awards during that time. Her biggest hits include "This Will Be (An Everlasting Love),'' "Unforgettable'' and "When I Fall in Love.''

The "Let Freedom Ring'' concert Monday at 6 p.m. is free, but tickets are required. Tickets will be distributed two per person on a first-come, first-serve basis beginning at 5 p.m.

During the concert, Georgetown University will also present its annual John Thompson Jr. Legacy of a Dream Award to George Jones, the CEO of the social services charity Bread for the City.
