Harry Connick Jr. has achieved a lot from his life. But despite his many achievements, he never forgets to give credit to Jesus for his success and remember that everything he has is a blessing from the Lord.
Humility Behind the Success
Harry is an actor, a singer, a talk show host and a big band leader. In everything he does, he gives his all and does well.
The 49-year-old Louisana-born has sold over 28 million copies of albums worldwide. You may have seen him from hit movies like Hope Floats (1998) starring aside Sandra Bullock, New In Town (2009) with Renee Zellwegger, the doctor in Dolphin Tale (2011 and 2014), and Grace’s husband in the hit TV show Will & Grace (2002-2006).
Talking with CBN’s Scott Ross, Harry shares about his life and success. Currently, he has a self-titled daytime entertainment show Harry on CBS.
When asked about the concept behind the talk show, Harry says it is based on all the things he likes to do – performing, playing music, making people laugh, telling stories and meeting people. It all stemmed from there that, fortunately, got them to where they are today.
The man’s principles in life really show through especially when he talks about his life. Clearly a family man, Harry wonderfully talks about his wife who is his “best friend” and a “woman I love very much.”
Despite being outnumbered with the females in his life with three daughters, he is able to maintain balance because they are always the “first.” And just like in faith, Harry shares having something to hold onto can make you “more productive in all of the other areas of your life.”
A Man of Faith
Harry is living the dream, he says. He is doing the exact thing he wants to do which is to see all these people from all walks of life and to make them happy for even just an hour.
At the same time, his spirituality never leaves him in every decision he makes. The Memphis Belle actor shares how he gives credit to his parents for “instilling in me the values I hold today.” In everything he does, he is always mindful if he is doing things “by example,” if it is what his children and others’ children would like to see.
After all his success, Harry never fails to give credit to Jesus for his success in life. And at the end of the day, he just finds a “great deal of comfort” with a real prayer.
