About Harry Connick Jr. Buy It Now! Over the past two decades, Harry Connick, Jr. has proven to be among the world’s most successful and multi-talented artists. Connick first reached a mass audience as a pianist, singer and bandleader, securing his place in the public eye as a Renaissance man and versatile entertainer. He first performed publicly at age five, appeared on his first jazz recording at age 10, and released his self-titled major label debut for Columbia Records at 19, only a year after his high school graduation and his move to New York City.

Connick achieved widespread success as a musician when he contributed the score to the 1989 smash When Harry Met Sally, leading to Connick's first multi-platinum album. Connick’s subsequent albums include To See You, Come by Me, Songs I Heard, and his blockbuster hits: Harry for the Holidays, Only You, and Oh, My NOLA.

Connick has also built a successful film career, appearing both on screen and soundtracks. After making his film acting debut in 1990, he has also appeared in Little Man Tate, Copycat, Independence Day, Hope Floats, John Grisham’s Mickey, and William Friedkin’s Bug, P.S., I Love You, and the upcoming 2009 release, Chilled in Miami, with Renee Zellweger.

As a television performer, Connick has starred in many holiday and concert specials, and most notably played the recurring role of Dr. Leo Markus on the NBC series Will & Grace. In October of 2008 Connick will star in the Lifetime Television movie Living Proof as Dr. Dennis Slamon, the UCLA doctor who developed the life-saving breast cancer drug, Herceptin 2.

As a New Orleans native, Harry Connick, Jr. is deeply attuned to the devastation caused by Katrina along the Gulf Coast. Connick teamed up with Branford Marsalis and the New Orleans Area Habitat for Humanity to create “Musicians’ Village,” a community in the Upper Ninth Ward.

All of these achievements – not to mention his album sales of over 25 million, his three Grammy Awards, Emmy Award, and Tony nominations – reflect a creative energy that make Harry Connick Jr. unique in the world of contemporary entertainment.
