Connick Jr's New Orleans Bond With Pitt

Jazz singer HARRY CONNICK JR is anxious to meet up with BRAD PITT again, so he can personally thank the movie star for the help he's giving the residents of New Orleans, Louisiana. The pair was among the first celebrities who stepped up to offer aid and support in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, which ravaged the city in 2005.
And Connick Jr., who was born and raised in New Orleans, has praised Pitt for organising his Make It Right campaign, which has continued to build homes for the displaced and devastated families in the area.
He tells OK! magazine, "I met him years ago, very briefly. I actually wrote him a letter to thank him for what he's doing.
"I don't know if he even got it. But if I ever see him again, I'll thank him again, because the benefit to the city is unimaginable."
