Who is her father? Harry Connick Jr. Short Wiki/Bio
Born on 11 September 1967 under the zodiac sign of Virgo, in New Orleans, Louisiana USA, Joseph Harry Fowler Connick Jr. was raised alongside his older sister Suzanna by his father, Joseph Harry Fowler Connick Sr., who was a district attorney, and mother Anita Frances, who worked as a judge and lawyer. His mother passed away from ovarian cancer when he was 13.
Harry’s parents owned a record store, so his love for music blossomed when he was still a young boy. He started playing keyboards at the age of three, and performed Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 3 Opus 37 with the New Orleans Symphony Orchestra at the age of nine; his outstanding musical talent led him to join a local jazz band when he was only ten years old. Under the guidance of Ellis Marsalis Jr. and James Booker, he honed his skills further at the New Orleans Center for Creative Arts. He also attended Lakeview School, Jesuit High School, and Isidore Newman School. Thereafter, Harry enrolled into Loyola University, and then transferred to Hunter College and the Manhattan School of Music, where he met Columbia Records executive George Butler, who was impressed by his talent, and so signed him to the label.

His music career officially started with the release of his debut self-titled album in 1987, while he gained widespread recognition two years later, for providing the music for the soundtrack of the romantic comedy-drama “When Harry Met Sally…”, featuring Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan,. The soundtrack achieved double-platinum certification from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), and earned him first Grammy Award for Best Jazz Male Vocal Performance.
Throughout the years, Harry has released a total of 26 studio albums, including such successful works as “We Are in Love” (1990), “Blue Light, Red Light” (1991), “When My Heart Finds Christmas” (1993) – which remains his best-selling Christmas album to date – and “Only You” (2004) that represents his highest-charting album, peaking at No. 5 in the US. He’s won two more Grammy Awards – Best Jazz Vocal Performance, Male for the album “We Are In Love” in 1991, and Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album for “Songs I Heard” in 2002. He’s also earned two Emmy Awards, and moreover won a Tony Award nomination for writing the score for the musical “Thou Shalt Not” in 2001.
According to the RIAA, Harry holds a position among the top 60 best-selling male artists, with an impressive 16 million in certified album sales.

His next significant appearance came when he featured as Leo Markus, the husband of Debra Messing’s character in the hit NBC sitcom “Will & Grace” from 2002 to 2006.
Harry’s prominence rose further when he shared the screen with John Travolta and Samuel L. Jackson in the 2003 thriller “Basic”, which was followed by his portrayals of Daniel Connelly in the romance “P.S. I Love You” (2007) and Ted Mitchell in the romantic comedy-drama “New In Town” (2009).
