Natalie Cole is recovering at home after a successful kidney transplant. Her spokeswoman, Maureen O'Connor, says Cole was released on Sunday from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.

O'Connor says Cole, who had the kidney transplant surgery on May 18, is "doing quite well under the circumstances."

The 59-year-old singer underwent the operation immediately after learning that a donor organ had become available.

The daughter of Nat King Cole had been receiving dialysis three times a week since September. But she still continued to perform in support of her latest album, the Grammy-winning "Still Unforgettable."

Cole postponed her summer tour, which was scheduled to begin June 5, so she can recover.
