Young Girl Brings Dad To Tears With The Song She Wrote For Him At American Idol Audition

A young girl performed a beautiful original song that she wrote for her dad on the latest episode of American idol.

Ash Ruder performed a heartwarming rendition of an original song that she wrote for her dad who she calls the ‘source of inspiration’ for her music.

The judges invite Ash’s dad on stage while she was about to audition with an original song she wrote about him.

There is a beautiful moment shared between Ash and her father as she sings for him.

The song is about how she always wanted to be daddy’s princess, but due to her dad’s drug and drink addiction, she couldn’t become one.

That made her very angry and she left home in her teens and lived life on her own terms.

But her dad had a change of heart and made the decision to become sober two years ago and now she has chosen to forgive him and give him another chance.

The performance is followed by multiple compliments from Katy Perry, Luke Bryan, and Lionel Richie.

Lionel tells Ash that she has ‘found the only subject that does not go out of style: love.’

Ash Ruder gets three yeses from the judges and now is headed to Hollywood!

American Idol is a huge platform where judges select the next singing sensation of the country with powerhouse judges Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie.
