| Filed under: TV NewsMusic Minute

Talent is flowing through the veins of this family like WHOA!

Last night, America's Got Talent was graced by the voice of Alice Tan Ridley, whose daughter is none other than Precious star Gabourey Sidibe.

Alice sang the Etta James classic, At Last and we won't lie, we started tearing up when she belted out the first note!

Powerful! Heartwarming! Beautiful!

Gabby should be so proud of her mama!

    Re: April 20th – No we want to punish him not reward him.



  19. 19

    WAY WAY WAY to over the top. I hate when people ruin a great song.



  20. 20

    WOW!!!!!!!!! That Lady WAS Amazing!!!!!!!!



  21. 21

    She's excellent.
    :D



  22. 22

    incredible. Absolutely breath-taking. Can't wait to buy her album.



  24. 24

    I can see she clearly has talent, but she butchered that song to bits :(



  25. 25

    She's very talented for a yak.



  26. 26

    very good singing



  27. 27

    Stop calling Perez a pedophile, I love 17 year old vagina.



  28. 28

    Re: myrick01 – It was NOT over the top. She sang the song perfectly. And with much soul and feeling. Listen to the original and then say Alice was over the top. Geez, why can't you give credit where it's due? She did the song justice in just a few mins.



  29. 29

    I have to admitt she really can sing and thats what an old school soul singer is. Pay attentipon Caca and winehouse lol



  30. 30

    GO TO JAIL. GO DIRECTLY TO JAIL. DO NOT PASS GO. DO NOT COLLECT $200. BITCH!!!!!



  31. 31

    Re: April_Rain

    That is your opinion. I'm not saying she can't sing, that is obvious. But yes in MY opinion, which I am entitled too, she sang and shimmied it over the top.



  32. 32

    OMG I saw it last night and she was amazing!!! She gave me the chills… Beautiful and I love the soul she gave to it but more importantly the passion she delivered it with was what made her performance all that more special… Jean-Luc King Brown myspace music…



  33. 33

    sorry to tell you guys. He's not going to jail. If he was they would have already arrested him.



  34. 34

    If I've heard one tired ass black singer wanna be then I've heard them all. The woman has no voice. No range. All she could do was project. Etta James should never be attempted by rank amateurs. It should be against the law. Even Beyonce couldn't hit "At Last" correctly. She might make it to Vegas but the closest she will make it to winning a competition is when the Mustang Ranch hires their spokesperson for seniors. Awful! Simply awful. I want my 5:18 back!



  35. 35

    I seriously got the chills at the first few notes! Awesome voice.



  36. 36

    Caught her act a few times in Times Square train station….she always gets a large crowd..she's that amazing. As a NYker…I'm so proud of her.

    Re: mattyesmateo – Wow. So much hate in one little post. You really need a good therapist.

    I only wish I could've somehow "muted" the picture of my TV screen. She sounded great, but she's just about as disgusting as her daughter to actually have to look at. Yuck!

    Re: Quetou
    You're so right! She gave me goosebumps.



  40. 40

    She was on a Dutch television show last week. Some ladies had seen her on the subway and had asked the TV show to track her down. They actually flew her in and gave her some cash they'd raised.

    Black Susan Boyle

    Her voice is really magnific!!!…Deserve lots of kisses.mouaaa mouaa moua…

    Re: MoritzStiefel
    That comment makes me wonder what runs in your family - bet it's not so good - I can't take a guess thats not profane really



  44. 44

    I started tearing up too I gotta admit. NOW STOP SPAMMING LOSERS!



  45. 45

    bleh



  46. 46

    She was amazing, I actually agree with you. But you're still a slimy piece of bat shit.



  47. 47

    BFD! All we need… isn't it bad enough her obnoxious daughter has been forced on us?

  48. tasha says – reply to this


    48

    That was fantastic First time since Susan Boyle on the Britain one that anyone has brought me to tears.



  49. 49

    Awesome! I hope she gets a career from this. She works so hard and has a great attitude!



  50. 50

    Good for her! I saw her performing at Penn Station and she is great!



  51. 51

    GABOUREY SIDIBE ISNT TALENTED. THE REASON SHES SO GOOD AT PLAYING A FAT BLACK SLOB IS THAT THAT IS WHAT SHE IS! SHE IS GOOD AT PLAYING HERSELF!!



  52. 52

    Girl gotta a set of pipes! You go Miss Thang!



  53. 53

    That was really moving….she sings with passion. All the very best..she deserves success.



  54. 54

    The woman has some PIPES. It's remarkable how suddenly someone's talent becomes apparent to the world! However, I must say I worry about her daughter - if she doesn't lose weight, Gabourey Sidibe is going to die before she realizes her full potential. You know it, Perez, and so do I.



  55. 55

    She has an amazing set of pipes. Absolutely brilliant!!!



  56. 56

    She is very good but noone you couldn't see in a baptist church, in any southern state. Gaborey is a big star now, we all know her mom's story. Why couldn't she help her mom out and let someone who needs the connections audtion for this contest?



  57. 57

    Pretty good! :)



  58. 58

    wow, nice powerful voice



  59. 59

    Go Goddess!!!!!!!



  60. 60

    Re: Cha_Cha_the famous – Maybe she wanted to make it on her own without having to rely on her daughter's connections? If Gaboury did help her out, you'd probably be one of the first to say that the only reason she had a record deal was because of her daughter's connections.



  61. 61

    Awesome!
    And an abode to you Perez-Yes, at last you are gonna pay for being a hypocrite. Like you tell Polanski-own up to what you did for once. Don't matter if Miley presses charges or not-it's against the law period.



  62. 62

    Very amazing.. and it really did make me tear up. Good Luck



  63. 63

    she's amazing!!!



  64. 64

    Looks like she has an eating disorder just like her daughter.



  65. 65

    Wow, that was fabulous.



  66. 66

    Amazing!!

    Many of her subway singing vids on Youtube are better than even this performance. How to do it, Alice, like you already can.



  68. 68

    I think this blog is dead, why did I just sign up?



  69. 69

    Absolutely breathtaking.



  70. 70

    COMPLETELY AWESOME! I wish her all the best! What a great voice!



  71. 71

    WOW! That was great. SHe not only has a great voice, but a huge personality. I really enjoyed watching that performance and there wasn't anything but her and the mic.



  72. 72

    WOW. Aretha someone is coming to pick up your crown.

  73. @v@ says – reply to this


    73

    Re: BoyFish – Yes, because Aretha doesn't appear to be showing up for it.



  74. 74

    myrickol, yes, you are entitled to your opinion, but Ridley did NOT butcher this song! She did it complete justice. Go listen to Mahalia Jackson…Ridley is very similar to Jackson in her singing style, and she sings the way a singer with this kind of talent SHOULD sing! I also disagree with you completely that she ruined this song! Again, yes, you have your opinion, but my opinion is that your opinion is about as wrong as it can be.

  76. 76

    mattyesmateo, I am a big Etta James fan, but how can you write that Ridley has no range and no power. She nailed this song. She is better than James actually, and as close to Mahalia Jackson as anyone I have ever heard! Shame on you.
