Harry Connick Jr. Recalls 'Inappropriate' Encounter With Frank Sinatra & His Wife

Harry Connick Jr. is remembering a less than fond memory of Frank Sinatra.

During an interview with the U.K.’s This Morning, the 52-year-old singer revealed that he was attending an event with his wife Jill Goodacre, and the two shared an elevator with the legendary crooner.

“He looked at [her] and kind of placed her face in his hands and said, ‘You’re beautiful,’ and he kissed her right on the mouth, walked out of the elevator and that was the end of that,” he revealed.

“I never got to sing for him again, she loves to remind me of that story…I think it was probably unacceptable then, but it was a situation where it was an interesting thing — I think because of my affection for him, in the context, she thought it was hilarious. But obviously it’s completely inappropriate,” he went on to explain.

The 51-year-old singer will return for Harry Connick, Jr. – A Celebration of Cole Porter, a limited engagement at Broadway’s Nederlander Theatre beginning in December in celebration of the works of the late composer, as featured on his upcoming album.

His upcoming album, True Love: A Celebration of Cole Porter, will be released in October as his first album on Verve Records.

The show will have its world premiere engagement at North Carolina’s Durham Performing Arts Center on September 21 and September 22. Following Broadway, the show will go on a national tour for the 2020-21 season.

It is described as featuring “a modern, multi-media presentation of some of Porter’s most beloved songs in an unprecedented and unique way,” and will include songs like “Anything Goes” and “You Do Something to Me.”

“This is the first time I’ve taken a deep dive into another artist’s repertoire, and Cole Porter was my #1 choice for the project,” he explained.
