NEWTOWN, Conn. (AP) — Harry Connick Jr. has written a song in honor
of a 6-year-old girl killed in the Newtown, Conn., school shooting.
Connick this week released the song “Love Wins,” dedicated to Ana
Grace Marquez-Greene. He says proceeds will go to the Ana Grace Fund set
up to help the girl's family.
Connick played with the girl's jazz saxophonist father, Jimmy Greene,
and sang at the funeral for Ana, one of 20 first-graders and six adults
killed in December at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
Greene is scheduled to receive the Governor's Arts Award at a
ceremony Saturday at the International Festival for Arts and Ideas in
Greene, an assistant professor at Western Connecticut State
University, has released a series of critically acclaimed albums and
received numerous honors.
