Back on Monday night, Norah Jones performed as part of the 2011 Webby Awards Gala in New York City. Why? Well, we're not so sure. But, hey, a nice performance nonetheless -- she covered Johnny Cash's "Ain't No Grave" with the help of a backing band and some superbly art directed backing visuals. As always, it was a tasteful performance from Booker T. Washington High School's Own. Beautiful, really.

Which is why -- y'know, given that it was a web awards show and all --we're a little surprised that the video hasn't gone more viral than it has. Oh well. We can at least do our part to try and help out on that front, right?

In that vein, hit the jump and check out the performance in full.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
