Harry Connick Jr.

This famous jazz pianist turned actor has sold over 25 million records. He was born in New Orleans with a Jewish mother, whose family owned a record store. He began playing piano at the young age of three, making public appearances by the time he was five. Though he chooses not to speak openly about it often, Connick is now a practicing Roman Catholic. He credits his mother with teaching him Christian actions, and his parents faith with shaping his values more than the doctrines of the church, though he values those deeply.
