Let’s Get to Know Kenedi Anderson’s Dad and the Rest of Her Big Family!

Kenedi Anderson might not be the only Anderson who’s become the center of the spotlight, as it was revealed that her dad is also famous. 

After singing Lady Gaga’s ‘Applause,’ the teenager wowed the judges during her American Idol audition and quickly became one of the show’s front-runners. Though viewers only saw her mom, Anne Anderson, during that audition, Kenedi stated that she has a ‘big family’ that’s highly athletic.

Much to the dismay of many, the singer’s time as an American Idol was short-lived. In late April 2022, Kenedi withdrew from the competition following just four episodes and three further performances. She stated on Instagram two days after she had left the series that she had removed herself for “personal reasons,” however she did not provide any further details.

Kenedi Anderson’s family was supportive while she was competing, and after, she decided to depart from the show. During her Idol Audition, Kenedi once talked about how close-knit her family is. “We’re all pretty close, but we’ve been through a lot together,” she said.

It is worth noting that Kenedi is not the only celebrity in her family. To give you a little background, Kenedi is the second oldest out of six kids. She also claimed that most of her family members are into sports, and she is the only musician. 

After fans learned he was a prominent football coach, Kenedi Anderson’s dad was also a revelation. Kenedi’s father, Justin Anderson, has worked as a coach at the University of Virginia and East Carolina. Due to his work, the Anderson family used to move a lot. “I’ve never been in one place for a very long time. I have been moving basically my whole life,” Kenedi stated.

Now, let’s learn more about Kenedi Anderson’s big family.
