Norah Jones: Sunrise

Norah Jones


Imagine going to a Norah Jones concert and hearing all of your favorite songs from this amazing artist.

Norah Jones, born on March 30th 1979 in New York City, is one of the most popular contemporary and jazz-influenced singers of our time. She was a member of Wax Poetic before her debut album Come Away With Me. She can still be heard singing with them on two tracks of their release, Nublu Sessions.

Her debut album Come Away With Me was released in 2002 and sold 22 million copies worldwide. It won 5 Grammy Awards in 2003.

Here's one of my favorite songs written in 2004, with words and music by Norah Jones and Lee Alexander... Sunrise. With a 2/2 time signature, played in the Key of Eb, here are the chords.
