At age 5, played the piano at his father's inauguration as New Orleans district
attorney. Trained under jazz great Ellis Marsalis, father of Branford and Wynton. Broke

Broadway in 2001. Became Honorary Chair of Habitat for Humanity's "Operation Home

New Orleans musicians who lost their homes to Hurricane Katrina. Made his Broadway

He’s a N’awlins-bred southern gentleman, looks great in a suit, has multiple Grammy and Emmy awards under his belt, and the man can croon.

* I had this great opportunity to listen to Harry's music in return of my honest opinion of it. Well to tell you the truth I didn't think I would like it because I am more of a Hi Hop music. I can honestly say I did really like Harry's music. It really had a nice beat and the way he sang was just so clear ans soothing.
