"This Will Be" (1975)

Cole's debut single is sunny and sassy, with bright horns and a joyous vocal performance that helped turn it into a rom-com staple. It won the 1976 Grammy for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance — the first time the award, which was established in 1968, didn't go to Aretha Franklin. Cole won the Best New Artist Grammy the same year.
