Any Norah jones fans in foo?

I saw part of a story about her on one of the news programs; 20/20 or something like that last week. In the wake of the media frenzy over Anna Nichole Smith it was very refreshing to see a truly beautiful person in the spotlight who is so down to earth and well grounded. I'm considering prying my wallet open for a concert ticket and going to see her in St Louis. I've never listened to her music, but I think I would like it.

My Wife and I have been big fans for a while now. Wife turned me on to her and Have been a fan since. We like her laid back, not in your face or news style.

Yeah, she's awesome. Very different style from the usual no talent barbie dolls trying to pass themselves off as singers.

I love Norah Jones and have all her stuff. She even has done some stuff with The Little Willes which was great.

I even like her recordings with the Peter Mallick Group. Great compilation of female artist there as well. And Peter's daughter Mercy has a great voice!

I'm a fan. She's as classy and tasteful as they come in my opinion.

Like her sister, she's got great talent, and it's only going to get better with time. There was a program on her a while back on American Routes (public radio). I enjoyed that.

I like her. Relaxation music that you want to listen to, not fall asleep to.
