HARRY CONNICK, JR. (Daniel) is among the world's most successful and multi-talented artists. Connick's love of music and performing dates back to his childhood in New Orleans, where he studied piano with such luminaries as James Booker and Ellis Marsalis. He first performed publicly at age five, appeared on his first jazz recording at age ten, 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. In the two decades since, he has released more than 20 albums totaling more than 25 million in sales and has received numerous honors, including three Grammy Awards.

Connick segued to films in 1989 when director Rob Reiner asked him to perform a number of standards for the romantic comedy smash "When Harry Met Sally.” The film's soundtrack became Connick's first multi-platinum album and also brought him his first Grammy for Best Jazz Male Vocal Performance. The following year, he made his onscreen debut in the World War II drama "Memphis Belle.” His film acting credits also include Jodie Foster's "Little Man Tate”; Jon Amiel's "Copycat”; "Independence Day,” with Will Smith; "Hope Floats,” opposite Sandra Bullock; John McTiernan's "Basic”; "Mickey,” written by John Grisham; and William Friedkin's "Bug.” He has also contributed his talents to the soundtracks for such films as "The Godfather: Part III,” "Sleepless in Seattle,” "The Mask” and "One Fine Day.”

On the small screen, Connick starred in the ABC presentation of the musical "South Pacific” and played the recurring role of Grace's love interest, Dr. Leo Markus, on the hit NBC series "Will & Grace.” In addition, he won an Emmy Award for the PBS Great Performances concert special "Harry Connick, Jr: Only You” and earned an Emmy nomination for the Great Performances concert special "Swingin' Out Live.” He also starred in two holiday specials, "When My Heart Finds Christmas” and "Harry for the Holidays,” both built around his best-selling holiday albums.

In 2006, Connick made his Broadway acting debut in the Tony Award-winning revival of "The Pajama Game,” earning nominations for Tony, Drama Desk, Outer Critics Circle and Drama League Awards for Best Performance by an Actor in a Musical. He had earlier received a Tony nomination for Best Original Score for the 2001 musical "Thou Shalt Not.” In 1990, he played to sold-out audiences in "An Evening with Harry Connick, Jr. and His Orchestra – Live on Broadway” at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre.
