Good for her!
Gabourey Sidibe's mother and singer Alice Tan Ridley is all set to perform in front of the judges of America's Got Talent! Ridley says:
“I have received an e-mail from the producers of the show and I have to appear before the judges in April. It’s a big break for me and I would like to follow in Susan Boyle’s footsteps and become a star in my own right.
"I love the judges, Sharon [Osbourne] and Piers [Morgan], and I’m really looking forward to trying and impress them although I have not decided what I will sing or wear yet. Singing is what I do so I'm looking forward to appearing on America’s Got Talent and showing people what I can really do."
Best of luck!
