Live Happy Is Wild About Harry Connick Jr.

May 2018 issue of LIve Happy magazine

This issue reminds us all to be a little nicer to everyone—including ourselves!

Live Happy aims to make the world a happier place, and Harry Connick Jr.—its May issue cover story celeb—ramps up the positivity at work and at home. He’s handsome and amazingly talented, yet also passionate about music, family, giving back and creating a culture of kindness in the world.

Harry, who was encouraged by his parents to help others, now does the same for his three teenage daughters.

“We were in Starbucks the other day and there was a woman who had a tray of drinks,” Connick says in his Live Happy cover story. “I told Charlotte [his daughter] to get up and go walk that woman to her car. And she came back five minutes later and said, ‘Oh, that woman was so nice, we were talking about all kinds of things.’ You have to be taught that things like that are socially appropriate.”

Connick also shares with readers his tips for happiness, including building good habits and hitting the right notes consistently every day.

Deborah K. Heisz, Live Happy’s CEO, co-founder and editorial director, says, “If you’re inspired by Harry Connick Jr.’s uplifting and soulful music or enjoy the positive values and community spirit of his TV show, Harry, then you’ll connect with him even more in this issue that reminds us all to be a little nicer to everyone—including ourselves!”
