Nora Brockstedt (20 January 1923 – 5 November 2015) was a Norwegian singer.

In her last years, she focused more on the jazz genre, with successful albums like As Time Goes By (JazzAvdelingen, 2004) and Christmas Songs (JazzAvdelingen, 2005). She sang jazz in the 1960s, but was more known for her 'conventional' pop songs.

She died after a short illness at Ullevaal Hospital in Oslo on 5 November 2015.[1][2]
