Harry Connick, Jr.
'Tis the season for giving, but Harry Connick, Jr. admits to Rachael that he did a little taking backstage before the show -- he empties his pockets to reveal handfuls of the silverware from her green room! "There's so much of it back there," he confesses. "I didn't really think it was stealing!"
Rachael laughs, "I really thought with 25 million albums sold you could afford some silver of your own!"
Harry, who can be seen with Renée Zellweger in the upcoming romantic comedy New in Town, tells Rachael about a project that's near to his heart, the Musicians' Village, an organization that he started with fellow New Orleanser Branford Marsalis and which works in conjunction with Habitat for Humanity. "We wanted to go in and do something for our community," Harry says. "We built 80 homes, and we're building a center named after Branford's dad, the Ellis Marsalis School for Music. And because of all of the great volunteer work and generosity, we were able to house many people, many of whom were musicians who we played with as kids. It's the coolest thing."
After taking a few audience questions, Harry gets everyone into the holiday spirit with a performance of "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year" from his latest CD, What A Night!
