I’m listening to the new Harry Connick, Jr. CD, Your Songs, and I’m really loving it. Harry Connick has such a smooth voice that listening to him sing these traditional songs is like hearing them for the first time. His voice calms me down and makes me forget about all of the things I’ve still go to do today :).
If you don’t know who Harry Connick, Jr. is you will most assuredly remember him from the TV show, Will and Grace. He played Grace’s husband, Leo Markus, for 24 episodes from 2002 until 2006.
However, Harry Connick, Jr. has always been known for his music.Did you know he has sold 25 million albums worldwide and is ranked among the top 60 best-selling male artists in the United States since 1952. Think of Frank Sinatra and you have Harry Connick. He has that smooth sound just like Frank. He has won three Grammy awards, and an Emmy Award. Originally from New Orleans, Louisiana, Harry and Branford Marsalis devised an initiative to help restore New Orleans‘s musical heritage.
Harry Connick, Jr celebrates his newest release, Your Songs, which is available on September 22. You can get a sneak peak of the Making of the album and Your Songs CD today. When you order your copy you will get an instant MP3 download of the track, “All The Way,” off the album which will be available everywhere September 22. Check out Harry’s Facebook page. The album is available in Digital format, Standard CD, or Deluxe CD/DVD that includes exclusive features and video footage.
