HARRY CONNICK, JR. (Justin) continues to break ground as
a musician and an actor. He made his film debut opposite Matthew
Modine, Eric Stoltz and John Lithgow in the 1990 drama "Memphis
Belle," a fictional re-enactment of the famous B-17's final
bombing raid over Germany during World War II. In 1991, in addition
to making a memorable guest appearance on the television series
"Cheers," Connick appeared in Jodie Foster's feature
directorial debut, "Little Man Tate." In 1995, he co-starred
with Holly Hunter and Sigourney Weaver in "Copycat,"
portraying a maniacal serial killer for which he garnered critical
acclaim. His additional credits include the 1996 summer box office
hit "Independence Day," with Will Smith and Jeff Goldblum,
released by Twentieth Century Fox, followed by his co-starring
role opposite Alicia Silverstone in "Excess Baggage."
Well known as an accomplished and award-winning musician,
it was his love for music that, at an early age, developed his
interest in performing. He began playing the piano at the age
of three and made his debut with a New Orleans' jazz band before
he turned ten. He moved to New York at age eighteen to study at
Hunter College and later at the Manhattan School of Music.
By the age of nineteen, Connick released his Columbia
Records self-titled debut, launching an enormously successful
recording career. His soundtrack recording to the 1989 film "When
Harry Met Sally" led to his first multi-plantinum album.
Subsequent multi-platinum hits include We Are In Love,
Blue Light Red Light and When My Heart Finds Christmas
(which was the best-selling holiday release of the 1993 season).
Connick's current album To See You, released in November
of 1997, is a vocal album of love songs for which he wrote all
lyrics and music for a sixty-five piece orchestra and which reached
number one on the Billboard Jazz Charts. He has four multi-platinum
and three platinum albums, one gold album, two Grammy Awards,
and has received Emmy, CableACE, Golden Globe and Oscar nominations.
