My heart be still! Talking with me today is one of America's most endearing heart-throbs. Harry Connick, Jr. is dialin' in to share the amazing journey he's recently taken with his film-maker daughter, Georgia.
Traveling over 3500 miles in a rented RV, this dynamic duo set out from their home in Connecticut stopping in numerous cities and towns along the route to listen to the stories of essential workers - the janitorial staff and garbage collectors, grocery and gas station attendants, truckers, food preparers, and more. They listened, they learned, and many celebrity friends "Zoomed" in too, giving their heartfelt thanks to these heroes who represent the heartbeat of America.
With a television crew following and filming (while practicing safe distancing and mask-wearing) the Connick's incredible journey came to an end in New Orleans. The footage captured became the CBS special "United We Sing: A Grammy Salute To The Unsung Heroes" which can now be seen on CBS All-Access, and Harry's new single "Stars Still Shine" can be downloaded where ever you get your music. All proceeds from the single will benefit the Ellis Marsalis Center for Music,- a phenomenal organization I encourage you to check out. Thanks for joining us! ~ Delilah
