(FOX NEWS) – Fats Domino, who sang such hits as “Ain’t That A Shame” and “Blueberry Hill,” died Tuesday, the coroner’s office said. He was 89.

Domino stood 5-feet-5 and weighed more than 200 pounds, with a wide, boyish smile and a haircut as flat as an album cover.

He sold more than 110 million records, and his 22 million-selling singles helped change popular music even as he honored the grand, good-humored tradition of New Orleans.

Harry Connick Jr. and other celebrities mourned the loss on social media.

Connick Jr. wrote, “you helped pave the way for new orleans piano players… see you on top of that blueberry hill in the sky.”
