Have you been following American Idol this season? If you have, you may have noticed some familiar faces, not necessarily on stage, but in the audience.

Jason Roy, lead singer of Christian rock band, Building 429, has a daughter who just made it to American Idol’s top 12! You may know Building 429 from their hits “Where I Belong,” “We Won’t Be Shaken,” and most recently, their single “You Keep Hope Alive.” It seems the talent runs in the family because Jason Roy’s daughter, Haven Madison is belting out original songs just like her dad and taking the American Idol world by storm.

From her initial audition where she sang an original song that had Lionel Richie wanting to sign her on the spot, to her recent cover of “Mean Girls” by Leanna Crawford, Haven has been impressing the judges and everyone watching with her performances.

Haven is only 16, but has managed to write some incredible tunes, some of which she has performed on the show. She even got to work with singer-songwriter and American Idol winner Phillip Phillips on the song she wrote called “Still Need You” for her brother who was battling depression.

What will she sing next? You’ll have to tune in to American Idol on Sundays and Mondays at 8 p.m. to find out. No matter what song she chooses to perform, keep an eye out for Jason Roy of Building 429 who can often be seen in the audience tearing up with pride, nervously waiting for his daughter’s turn, or cheering her on.
