Eurythmics’ Dave Stewart Finds Performing With Daughter Kaya Harder Than Rock Hall Induction

When it comes to iconic musicians, Dave Stewart of the Eurythmics certainly comes to mind. With an illustrious career spanning decades, Stewart has influenced countless artists and fans alike. Recently, he faced a new challenge when he joined his daughter, Kaya Stewart, for her American Idol audition. Little did he know, performing with his daughter would prove to be even more nerve-wracking than his own Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction.

In 2022, Dave Stewart and Annie Lennox were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as part of the famed duo Eurythmics. Their unique sound and powerful lyrics have made them a staple in the music world, and this induction was a well-deserved recognition of their contributions. However, the stage at the American Idol auditions was a different story.

Dave Stewart and his daughter Kaya performed an original song, ‘This Tattoo,’ for judges Katy Perry and Lionel Richie, who had been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame alongside the musician. So, naturally, after their performance, Stewart shared how he felt about performing with his daughter with them. He stated that in comparison to his Rock Hall induction, performing with his daughter for American Idol was harder.

He confessed:

“This is much more difficult than being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. It is!”

Dave Stewart’s experience performing with his daughter Kaya on American Idol is a testament to the power of music and the unique bond it can create between family members. As Kaya Stewart continues to pursue her dreams, it’s clear that the musical legacy of the Stewart family is in good hands.
