Recognized for his musical performances, for his achievements on the Broadway stage, and screens large and small, Harry Connick, Jr. has won three Grammy Awards and two Emmy Awards, received multiple Tony Award nominations, and garnered sales of over 28 million.
In the fall of 2016, Connick will debut his nationally syndicated daytime show Harry, bringing the party to daytime and entertaining viewers with a live band and laughter.
The foundation of Connick’s art is the music of his native New Orleans, where he began performing as a pianist and vocalist at the age of five. Not surprisingly, Harry has used his influence as an entertainer to further his charitable work in his home town. Following the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, he and fellow musician Branford Marsalis partnered with Habitat for Humanity to create the Musicians’ Village in the Upper Ninth Ward.
The Village and its centerpiece, the Ellis Marsalis Center for Music, provide homes for musicians and other displaced citizens, a community center with a performance hall, a recording studio and after-school facilities for kids. His contributions to the post-Katrina effort have been acknowledged by a Redbook Strength and Spirit Award, an honorary degree from Tulane University, and the 2012 Jefferson Award for Public Service.
