‘Do they have musical aspirations?’ entertainment reporter Brooke Boney asked the acclaimed jazz singer. 

‘I don’t know yet, they’re really little, so the jury is still out,’ Norah said. 

‘They’ve been watching the Trolls World Tour movie that just came out. Now they want to know about the genre of everything. “Is this K-Pop? Country music?”‘

She added: ‘My son wants to be a techno singer now, so it’s funny.’

The singer, whose hits include Don’t Know Why, also spoke about the release of her 2002 debut album, Come Away with Me, which became a worldwide hit when she was just 23 years old.

‘Yeah it was crazy,’ Norah said. ‘It seems like another lifetime ago. It was wild.’   

Norah is notoriously private when it comes to her personal life. 

It was reported in July 2016 that she’d given birth to her second child. She also has a son, whose name she is yet to reveal publicly.

Norah shares her children with keyboardist Pete Remm. 

While the artist has never publicly revealed the identity of her husband, fellow artist Valerie June revealed his name in an interview with OPB.org. 

She gave birth to her son in February 2014, and she gave him an early public debut when she brought him to an event for military mothers at the White House just months later. 

She previously told Rolling Stones about motherhood, saying: ‘I don’t feel being a mom has changed anything musically for me, but it changes how I hear certain love songs.’

‘Some songs I’ve known my whole life – then you have a kid and it’s like, “Oh! That’s about this! Or maybe it’s not, but it is for me, now.”‘ 

Since bursting onto the scene in 2002, Nora has won a string of awards and sold more than 50 million albums, with her of Come Away With Me being certified diamond after selling more than 26 million copies.

She has won nine Grammy Awards, and was named the top jazz artist of the 2000s by Billboard.
