Wiki

Perhaps piano-playing prodigy Norah Jones was always destined for greatness: From an early age, it was clear that she had inherited the musical talent of her famous father, Indian sitar legend and esteemed Beatles associate Ravi Shankar. But no one, especially Jones herself, could have predicted that her destiny would arrive so quickly, or spectacularly. Within the course of one short year, the exotic jazz chanteuse with the smoky voice and eyes skyrocketed from complete unknown to critics' darling to unlikely mainstream megastar--with this upward trajectory culminating in an astounding eight-trophy sweep at the 45th annual Grammy Awards. Winning every category in which she was nominated--including Best New Artist and Album, Record, and Song Of The Year--this gifted, torch-singing newcomer even trounced odds-on favorite Bruce Springsteen, in the process doing for jazz in 2003 what the O Brother, Where Are Thou? soundtrack's Grammy win did for bluegrass and country in 2002.
