Last night Norah Jones kicked off the “Celebrate Brooklyn” summer concert series with a free concert in Prospect Park, and not even a driving rain could keep the 5,000-plus fans in attendance from enjoying the performance while huddled under umbrellas. Blue Note’s songstress played a 2-hour set to those who braved the rain. “What a beautiful bouquet of umbrellas! Thanks for coming out and getting soggy with us,” Jones told the crowd.
