British singer Cheryl Cole is in mourning after her great-grandmother died.
Nora Tweedy, the grandmother of Cole's father Gary, passed away from pneumonia after suffering a stroke in the early hours of Monday (09Jul12).
Tweedy's youngest son John has paid tribute to his mother and insists the Girls Aloud star inherited her musical talent from her great-grandmother.
He says, "She loved to sing and dance. In many ways, she was an older version of Cheryl. I think music must run in the family."
