Katharine McPhee was born Katharine Hope McPhee in Los Angeles, California, on March 25, 1984. In addition to Katharine’s older sister Adriana, who also works as a vocal coach on “American Idol,” her father Daniel (who passed away in 2018) was a TV producer and her mother Peisha (who began working on the show in 2011) was a vocal coach.
At Notre Dame High School, McPhee participated in theater shows and got music lessons from her mother. Katharine studied musical theatre at the Boston Conservatory for three semesters after graduating in 2002. After consulting with her management, she decided to return to Los Angeles and begin auditioning for pilot roles while still enrolled in college.

Katharine McPhee Music Career
When Katharine appeared on “American Idol” in San Francisco in 2005, her performance of “God Bless the Child” earned her a trip to Hollywood. She was a fan favorite and made it all the way to the finals, where she lost out to eventual winner Taylor Hicks. Since her signing to RCA Records in June 2006, “Somewhere Over the Rainbow/My Destiny” has sold more copies than Hicks’ “Do I Make You Proud,” which was the year’s only other top-selling song.
However, because of bronchitis and laryngitis, she missed the first three weeks of her “American Idol” tour. An astonishing 116,000 copies were sold within the first week of McPhee’s self-titled album’s release in January 2007, and her hit “Over It” was certified Gold in February 2008. Katharine went on to make four more albums, including “Unbroken,” “Christmas Is the Time to Say I Love You,” “Hysteria,” and “I Fall in Love Too Easily”. As a result, she was also a part of the smash soundtracks for both smash films, namely “The Music of Smash” in 2012 and “Bombshell” in 2013.

She returned to the role in 2015 for a one-night-only performance at the Minskoff Theatre on Broadway of “Bombshell in Concert,” which was a sold-out success. “Scorpion” began airing in 2014, and McPhee was cast as a single mother with a genius son, who appeared in all 93 episodes. Aside from “CSI: NY,” “Community,” and “Family Guy,” Katharine has appeared in the Lifetime film “The Lost Wife of Robert Durst” as an extra.
Katharine McPhee Personal Life
A few months after TMZ published photos of Katharine kissing “Smash” director Michael Morris (who has been married to actress Mary McCormack since 2003), she filed for divorce from Nick Cokas, her husband of eight years. Since the beginning of 2013, Katharine and Nick have been apart, a source tells People magazine.
The divorce was finalized in February 2016. From August 2014 to July 2016, McPhee was seeing “Scorpion” co-star Elyes Gabel, and in May 2017, she began dating record producer David Foster. A year after Katharine’s first single was released, David proposed, and the couple tied the knot on June 28, 2019. After starting their tour in January 2020, McPhee and Foster had to cancel their remaining performances in March owing to the Coronavirus epidemic.
A Burkina Faso preschool was built with the help of Global Compassion Services, and the Lollipop Theater Network worked with Katharine to offer music to children in Southern California hospitals. She was diagnosed with anorexia and bulimia at the age of 13 and 17, respectively, and began binge eating in college when she was 17. She completed a 3-month eating disorder treatment program in late 2005. After her “American Idol” audition, McPhee chose to get therapy and credits the show with saving her life.
