Rock star Rod Stewart's daughter RUBY is carrying on the Stewart name by launching a singing career.

The 17-year-old beauty, whose mother is Stewart's ex-wife KELLY EMBERG, performed at her father's gig at the VETERANS MEMORIAL ARENA in Jacksonville, Florida on Saturday (03JUL04).

As the former FACES singer rested his throat for five minutes and had a drink of water, Ruby sang Pat Benatar's hit HEARTBREAKER before 10,000 fans.

One audience member enthuses, "Ruby doesn't have Benatar's range, but the kid certainly can sing and you had to admire her nerve."
