Caroline Kraddick may be best known as the daughter of nationally syndicated radio host, Kidd Kraddick, but she has embraced the Kraddick name and is making it her own!
After the sudden loss of her father, Caroline found a silver lining when she decided to continue her father’s legacy by taking on The Kraddick Foundation. As CEO and Chief Happiness Officer of Kidd’s Kids, Caroline has spent the last 4 years focused on The Kraddick Foundation and their mission to create beautiful memories for the families of children with life altering and life-threatening conditions. Having built a strong team to manage the daily operations of the foundation, Caroline is now focusing on creating her legacy.
A music artist at heart, Caroline sang at her father’s public memorial and then walked away from music. After losing her dad, her greatest passion became a vulnerable place that was just too painful to visit. But in 2017, Caroline was encouraged by a friend to audition for ABC’s American Idol.
During the Idol audition process, Caroline rediscovered her first love and found her true musical voice. Describing her musical style as a cross of Chris Stapleton and Adele, she is singing deep, soulful country music and finally feels like she is doing what she was born to do.
Through her lifestyle blog, CarolineKraddick.com, Caroline shares her love of music (“Covers with Caroline”), cooking (“The Kraddick Kitchen”), fashion and beauty, and is currently partnering with brands as both a brand ambassador and influencer.
A dedicated patron of philanthropy, Caroline’s charitable efforts don’t end with The Kraddick Foundation. She served as a 2017 DIFFA Style Council Ambassador and is an enthusiastic supporter of the Music Meets Medicine charity, as well as the American Heart Association. She has attended various charity events as both a speaker and emcee. Caroline is also a regular contributor on the nationally syndicated “Kidd Kraddick Morning Show”, has appeared in several commercials as well as multiple TV appearances and has appeared as a special guest on multiple Dallas news broadcasts.
Caroline holds a special place in her heart for kids and animals and when she’s not checking locations off her travel bucket list, you can find her at the gym or binging episodes of Law and Order: SVU.
