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 was expected to receive the Governor’s Arts Award at a ceremony Saturday at the International Festival for Arts and Ideas in New Haven. Greene, an assistant professor at Western Connecticut State University, has released a series of critically acclaimed albums and received numerous honors.
