Singer Norah Jones

Singer Norah Jones left fans spellbound with her soulful voice as she performed for the first time in the capital Tuesday.

The show was opened by singer M.Ward, who played for almost an hour, before making way for Jones.

Jones, 33 was greeted by a huge roar from fans as she appeared on the stage. Dressed in a black and white printed short dress, the singer said she was "excited to perform here".

In a performance appearing magical due to the innovative lightning arrangement on the stage, Jones sang her famous numbers like "Happy Pills", "What am I to you" and "Rosie lullaby" and responded positively to the members of the animated audience who shouted "Norah I love you" and "You are great".

Accompanied by two guitarists, a drummer and a keyboard player and even accompanying herself on the guitar and piano for some of the songs, Jones responded light-heartedly: "We can just sit here (on stage) and you guys can continue praising us."

The daughter of late Indian sitar legend Ravi Shankar and half sister of Anoushka Shankar, Jones also took out some time from singing to express appreciation for the audience's support.

"This is our second performance in India and it's a lot of fun. Thank you for having us here".

The singer has already performed in Mumbai as part of the 'A Summer's Day' music festival and will again perform here Wednesday before heading to Banglore for her final gig in India March 8.

The Norah Jones India Tour produced by Only Much Louder is in partnership with Women's Cancer Initiative-Tata Memorial Hospital to raise awareness and funds for breast cancer in India.
