Jimmy Greene - Jimmy Greene Releasing Tribute Album For Slain Daughter

Jazz musician Jimmy Greene is set to release a tribute album to his daughter, who was the victim of a tragic Connecticut school massacre in 2012.

Ana Grace Marquez-Greene, six, was killed when gunman Adam Lanza fatally shot 20 children and six adult staff members at the Sandy Hook Elementary School before turning the gun on himself.

In 2013, singer/actor Harry Connick, Jr., who has worked with Greene, penned a tribute song for Ana Grace and now the saxophonist is releasing a full album of tunes inspired by his dead daughter.

He says, "She had qualities in her that were very well beyond her years. She would sort of sense when somebody needed a word of encouragement or a hug or a little piece of kindness. She would do it without being prompted or without someone asking for it."

Greene's album will feature Ana Grace singing the hymn Come Thou Almighty King, which was recorded months before the massacre, according to Billboard.com.

The proceeds from the record will benefit the Ana Grace Project and The Artists Collective charities.
