A Conversation with Harry Connick, Jr.


With a music, film, television and Broadway career spanning three decades, New Orleans native son Harry Connick, Jr. is the essence of a Renaissance man. Join Sheen Center Interim Executive Director David DiCerto for a conversation with the Grammy and Emmy Award winner about his musical career, his Catholic faith, his work with the Ellis Marsalis Center for Music, and the tragic personal losses of two dear friends to COVID-19: mentor Ellis Marsalis, Jr. and Monsignor Richard Guastella, the priest who gave him his first job in New York, celebrated his wedding ceremony and baptized one of his daughters.

From Harry:

hey, everyone! here’s my new song, STARS STILL SHINE, dedicated to all of the incredible heroes who make our lives so much better everyday – especially the folks who don’t get the attention they deserve – this one is for YOU! this song is about how the stars still shine even behind the storm clouds – just like these heroes… all proceeds will go to the Ellis Marsalis Center For Music to benefit some incredible kids living in one of new orleans most underserved communities… i hope you like it!
