CNBC Meets: Jessye Norman, part two

In part two, Norman talks about her big break in opera and some of the challenges she faced early on in her career.

She discusses how she never felt the pressure to marry and why she is glad she never accepted any of the marriage proposals that came her way.

She also expresses her frustrations and disappointments at U.S. Congress for putting "unprecedented roadblocks" in the way of President Barack Obama, just because he is African American.
