“When choosing a star location, we try to incorporate ties to the honoree and this one turned out to be a coincidence as we had heard that one of Harry’s favorite songwriters is Cole Porter, who is Harry’s neighbor star,” said Ana Martinez, producer of the Walk of Fame, in a statement. “His latest album, titled True Love: A Celebration of Cole Porter, will be released on October 25, to be followed by a Broadway show in December entitled Harry Connick, Jr: A Celebration of Cole Porter. Talk about serendipity! We welcome Harry to our Walk of Fame neighborhood and we are proud to honor him!”

Connick Jr.’s star, the 2,678th on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, is in the category of Recording. The upcoming ceremony will be held at 7080 Hollywood Boulevard.
