Joseph Harry Fowler Connick, Jr. (born September 11, 1967) is an American singer, big-band leader/conductor, pianist, actor, and composer. He has sold over 25 million albums worldwide. Connick is ranked among the top 60 best-selling male artists in the United States by the Recording Industry Association of America, with 16 million in certified sales. He has seven top-20 US albums, and ten number-one US jazz albums, earning more number-one albums than any other artist in the US jazz chart history. ** "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" is a song written by Johnny Marks based on the 1939 story Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer published by the Montgomery Ward Company. In 1939 Marks' brother-in-law, Robert L. May, created Rudolph as an assignment for Montgomery Ward and Marks decided to adapt the story of Rudolph into a song. Marks (1909--1985), was a radio producer who also wrote several other popular Christmas songs. The song was sung commercially by crooner Harry Brannon on New York City radio in early November 1949, before Gene Autry's recording hit #1 in the U.S. charts the week of Christmas 1949. Autry's version of the song also holds the distinction of being the only number one hit to fall completely off the chart after hitting #1. The official date of its #1 status was for the week ending January 7, 1950, making it the first #1 song of the 1950s. Autry's recording sold 2.5 million copies the first year, eventually selling a total of 25 million, and it remained the second best-selling record of all time until the 1980s. Songwriters: Robert L. May, George Kleinsinger Hey kids! You know Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen Comet and Cupid and Donner and Blitzen But do you recall The most famous reindeer of all Yeah !!
