David Foster Says Nanny’s Death Has Been ‘Tough’ for Katharine McPhee
David Foster recently shared that the death of his and Katharine McPhee’s nanny has been “tough” on the American Idol singer. McPhee left the couple’s Asia tour early last month after Yadira Calito was killed in an accident.
David Foster, Katharine McPhee Cope with Nanny’s Death
In August, 55-year-old Calito was tragically killed in an accident at a local Toyota dealership when an 84-year-old woman mistakenly accelerated while operating an SUV. The vehicle crashed into the reception area of the dealership and pinned Calito underneath it.
After learning what happened to Calito, McPhee departed her and Foster’s Asia tour early to travel home. She released a statement about her departure, explaining that there had been a “horrible tragedy in our family.” Calito worked as a nanny to the couple’s 2-year-old son Renny.
“It’s been tough for her,” Foster said of how McPhee is handling the loss in a new interview with Entertainment Tonight. “It’s been tough. But she’s managing.”
The Couple Is Releasing a Christmas Album
Next month, Foster and McPhee are releasing a continuation of their 2022 album Christmas Songs. The first single from the new project, “Amazing Grace,” is due to be released on October 6.
“We got a nice response from the first seven songs so we thought, ‘Oh, people are kinda digging this,'” Foster told Entertainment Tonight. McPhee described the new project as “a completion of the first Christmas album.”
The couple’s new Christmas album will be released October 20. This gives plenty of time for fans to enjoy it before Christmas Day. The first Christmas Songs album, which features seven tracks, is available to stream right now.
