David Foster, Katharine McPhee Announce New Music After the Death of Their Nanny

By Movieguide® Contributor 

David Foster and Katharine McPhee are mourning the death of their family’s nanny, Yadira Calito, after she was tragically killed in an accident in August. 

Foster and McPhee joined Entertainment Tonight for an exclusive interview.

“It’s been tough for [McPhee],” Foster said. “Yeah, it’s been tough. She’s managing.”

“Thank you,” McPhee said of the support. 

Since the death of their nanny, the couple has been focusing on new music.

“We got a nice response from the first seven songs so we thought, ‘Oh, people are kinda digging this,” Foster tells ET. The songs are a continuation of Christmas Songs.

“Volume two, we’ll just complete the whole thing,” McPhee adds. “A couple of my girlfriends are like, ‘You’re doing another Christmas album?’ I’m like, ‘No, this is a completion of the first Christmas album.’

McPhee discussed what it’s like to work with her husband. 

“It’s pretty fast and furious ’cause he gets so focused,” she said. “There’s not a lot of messing around. It’s like you see the back of his head for a lot of the day honestly ’cause he just drills down. But for me, my favorite part is obviously being in the recording booth when he’s recording my vocals. I don’t see anybody, but I just hear his voice and he’s always been the best to record vocals.”

Their first single, “Amazing Grace,” will release October 6, and the full album, “Christmas Songs,” will release October 20.
