Harry Connick Jr. told students at the White House on Sunday that music can get people through the darkest times — even a disaster like Hurricane Katrina, which devastated his hometown of New Orleans in 2005.

The Grammy-winning composer and singer was welcomed to the White House by first lady Michelle Obama, who invited him to perform for members of a Washington elementary school glee club. Connick co-founded the Musicians’ Village in New Orleans, which helped provide housing for displaced musicians after Katrina.
