Norah Jones Net Worth $25 Million
The elder daughter of world-renowned Indian musician Ravi Shankar and American concert producer Sue Jones, Norah Jones is a long-standing music enthusiast; Jones has credited many of the old jazz legends with inspiring her to pursue a career in the music industry. Jones had her first experiences with public singing in church, and she was tutored in singing and playing the piano as a child. Even then, Norah Jones was already drawing attention for her amazing voice and compositions, being awarded with two DownBeat Student Music Awards in 1996. Jones went on to study jazz piano in the University of North Texas, and it was there that she met one of her future colleagues, singer and songwriter Jesse Harris.
By 2001, Norah Jones had moved back to New York, where she was soon noticed by the jazz recording label “Blue Note Records”. “Blue Note” offered Norah a contract in spite of uncertainties over the direction her music was to take – and it proved a clever choice, as Norah Jones’s debut solo album “Come Away with Me” not only went on to top the US Billboard 200, but won Jones an astonishing five Grammy Awards, and has sold over 26 million copies across the world to date – a huge initial boost to Norah Jones’s net worth. Subsequent albums would prove equally successful, with the 2004 “Feels Like Home” reaching #1 in over sixteen countries across the world. Having released several chart-topping albums, Norah is the recipient of multiple Grammy Awards to date.
In addition, Jones debuted as an actress alongside Jude Law and Natalie Portman in the 2007 romantic drama “My Blueberry Nights”. Norah has so far appeared in more than a dozen films, mostly as herself, plus a number of documentaries and television series, which have contributed significantly to her net worth.
Recently touring several cities in India, and continuing to collaborate with a number of other musicians and singers, Norah Jones shows no sign of slowing down – and her net worth is sure to continue growing as her career goes on.
In her personal life, Norah Jones was in a long-term relationship with the bassist Lee Alexander from 2000 until 2007. In 2014 she gave birth to a son, but refuses to identify the father with whom she lives.
