'Idol 6' auditioneer Porcelana Patino rushes to dad's hospital bed

UPI News Service, 02/03/2007 

"American Idol" contestant Porcelana Patino is more concerned with her father's New York car accident than the singing contest.

During the airing of an episode where she wowed the "Idol" judges, Patino, 27, was at her father's bedside in a New York hospital. Her father, Mario Astudillo, was recovering from a hit-and-run accident he suffered on his way to work on Jan. 29, the New York Post reported Saturday.

"The day everybody in the world sees the freaking show, I was here," Patino told the Post. She said nurses and other hospital staff were stunned to see her there.

"(He's) the most important thing to me," Patino said of her father, who is recovering from a broken shoulder, leg and ribs.

Patino won the favor of the judges by describing her workout routine to the theme song from "Rocky," then belting out a rendition of Mary J. Blige's "Love Without a Limit," the Post reported.
