The Come Away With Me hitmaker was also seen with her partner - a musician who she has refused to name in interviews, fiercely protecting their relationship - as she carried her adorable son strapped to her chest in a baby carrier.The mother-of-one added: ‘It was never stressful because it was loose and nobody was coming but our friends, but I was always sweating by the end because I would think, “Ahhh! In 2002, Jones launched her solo music career with the release of Come Away with Me, a commercially successful and critically acclaimed album that was a fusion of jazz with country music and pop.
Her subsequent studio albums Feels Like Home, released in 2004; Not Too Late, released in 2007, the same year she made her film debut in My Blueberry Nights; and 2009's The Fall all gained Platinum status, selling over a million copies each.
Jones was born Geetali Norah Shankar on March 30, 1979 in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, New York, to American concert producer Sue Jones and Indian sitar maestro Pandit Ravi Shankar, who was 58 (8 days before his 59th birthday) when she was born.
After her parents separated in 1986, Shankar lived with her mother, growing up in Grapevine, Texas.
She attended Colleyville Middle School and Grapevine High School before transferring to Booker T.
Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts in Dallas.
While in high school, she sang in the school choir, participated in band, and played the alto saxophone.
At the age of sixteen, with both parents' consent, she officially changed her name to Norah Jones.
Jones always had an affinity for the music of Bill Evans and Billie Holiday, among other "oldies".
She once said, "My mom had this eight-album Billie Holiday set; I picked out one disc that I liked and played that over and over again." As a child, Jones began singing in church and also took piano and voice lessons. She considers herself spiritual and appreciates the rituals of her church but does not consider herself deeply religious.
