    Chad Wackerman's Daughter, Sofia, on American Idol

    Pretty cool that she was on and dropped her dad's name and Zappa's. Chad was there in the vestibule waiting for her after her performance. She was a really good singer and got the trip to Hollywood. Be interesting to see how she does. Sad story about her mother. Lung cancer victim.

    Looks like the AI producers have chosen her mom as the angle to focus on:

    Incidentally, last week Chad played on Seth Meyers's show backing James Taylor.

    Sofia can also be heard on the title-track from Life by MSM Schmidt:



    Great album b.t.w. One of the last to feature Chad's old buddy Allan Holdsworth (although not on this track).

    I presume he's the same Mike Miller who was with Banned From Utopia and has filled in for John Goodsall with Brand X.

    Her mother, Naomi Starr, did backing vocals for the Moody Blues (19881990).

    She gave a nice performance last night and went on to the final 20. I guess Chad has been raising his special needs son and his daughter, Sofia, as a single dad since his wife died, They were all there last night along with Chad's brother and sister-in-law. Very touching! It gave me an excuse to have my wife watch a video of Chad with Zappa. Good luck to Sofia! I wonder if she'll do Inca Roads or something in the final round?

    It's very heartening. i like all musical talent, including greatly enjoying AI.
    What can this strange device be? When I touch it, it brings forth a sound.
