The Story Of Connick Jr.
Harry Connick Jr. was born in New York City in 1958 and began performing on Broadway at just four years old. He grew up in the city and attended Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art. After a few years on Broadway, Connick Jr. returned to the city as a recording artist and won a Grammy for Best New Artist in 1991. The award was for Connick’s debut album, Good to Great, which also happened to be his father’s (Connick Sr.) greatest album, according to Rolling Stone. In 1999, Connick Jr. earned a Tony Award for Best Featured Actor in a Musical for his portrayal of Georges Moustakas in the original production of Kinky Boots, and in 2016, he was inducted into the Broadway Hall of Fame.
Connick Jr’s Career Highlights
Connick Jr.’s career has been marked by both highs and lows. He first broke into the public eye as a vocalist on his father’s albums, and in the ’80s and early ’90s, he began to receive Tony Award nominations for his work on Broadway. In the 2000s, his career took a downward turn when he went through a rough patch. In 2007, he was arrested in NYC and charged with assaulting a police officer. Thankfully, the charges were eventually dismissed. In 2008, Connick Jr. was arrested for allegedly trespassing at Graceland and charged with public intoxication. Once again, he was lucky to walk away without a criminal record. In 2011, he was arrested for driving under the influence in New York City and spent nearly three hours in the back of a police car before being released without being charged.
