Career: Musician-Actor
Famous Family: Musician Ravi Shankar (father)

Few musicians in recent history have launched their careers as successfully as Norah Jones. Her 2002 solo debut, Come Away With Me, showcased Jones' unique sound, a sort of jazz/pop/soul fusion. The album went on to sell more than 26 million copies and earn the then-23-year-old five Grammy Awards, including Album of the Year and Best New Artist. Though her subsequent albums have never reached the mainstream popularity of her debut, Jones has successfully found her way into other creative endeavors, including a starring role in Wong Kar-Wai's My Blueberry Nights, opposite Jude Law and Natalie Portman.
