Connick is beyond handsome, and I think I fell for him just a little watching him move about the screen. I knew he was a singer, but I hadn’t really listened to any of his work—he was simply beautiful to look at.
Then when I visited New Orleans for Mardi Gras in 1998, I learned about a whole different side of him—a NOLA boy through and through, but a member of the new generation. He was one of the founders of the Krewe of Orpheus, one of the Mardi Gras’s SuperKrewes, and the first Krewe to allow both men and women and mixed races to ride …
