All the singers have ties to the recently departed Apple co-founder. Jones has played at least one Apple press event; Newman voiced movie scores for Pixar; and Coldplay spent time with Jobs backstage at one of their concerts.
Coldplay performed "Fix You," "Yellow" and other songs in an outdoor amphitheater in an interior courtyard on Apple's campus. The singer Norah Jones covered the Bob Dylan song "Forever Young."
It's nice that Apple said goodbye to their former CEO with such a nice, mild Jobsapalooza. Even if Jobs himself would most definitely have preferred Bob Dylan to Randy Newman.
