Scott Stapp Reacts to Death of Chris Daughtry’s Daughter
“Due to the unexpected death of Chris and Deanna Daughtry’s daughter, Hannah, all currently scheduled shows for the coming week for Daughtry have been postponed,” the statement said.

In addition to Scott Stapp, other fans of Daughtry also sent him messages during this time. One person wrote, “Oh my good wishes to you and your family in this difficult time. I’m so sorry for your loss.”

Chris Daughtry started the band Daughtry shortly after his time on the fifth season of “American Idol.” Since then, the band just released the album “The Dearly Beloved” and was on tour starting on November 3.

Stapp Upcoming Movie Role
The Creed singer has been entertaining audiences since 1994. Now, Scott Stapp will have his very first role in a feature film.
Scott Stapp will portray Frank Sinatra in the biopic film titled “Reagan.” The movie focuses on the life and presidency of Ronald Reagan. Stapp will perform a scene as Sinatra at the Cocoanut Grove, which was an incredibly popular club at the time in Hollywood. At the time, Reagan was the president of the Screen Actors Guild and often made an appearance here.
“Sinatra in performance mode was an exercise in restraint. He had this steely, stylish swagger and his sheer presence commanded a room. I was excited to join the cast and blown away by the on-set attention to detail, style, and overall production,” Stapp said to Billboard.
He will join Dennis Quaid (who is playing the title role), Penelope Ann Miller, Mena Suvari, Kevin Dillon, and Jon Voight.
Scott Stapp has been busy with music lately as well. He released the album “The Space Between the Shadows” last year. He has sold millions of albums and also got the Grammy for best rock song for “With Arms Wide Open” in 2001.
