One of the contestants of Fox’s “American Idol” is the daughter of the lead singer of a famous rock band, the New York Post reports.
Lara Johnston appeared briefly during last week’s San Francisco audition, with her strong performance earning her a ticket to Hollywood, the story says. Johnston is the daughter of Tom Johnston, the lead singer of the Doobie Brothers.
While she will be featured on this week’s show, the judges apparently don’t mention the music connections in her family, the story notes. It says that Johnston is a music major at the University of Southern California.
