Gabourey’s Mother on ‘America’s Got Talent’Published by Clay Cane on Thursday, June 17, 2010 at 10:20 am.
Acting is not the only talent that runs in the Sidibe family. If you are a New Yorker chances are you’ve seen Gabourey Sidibe’s mother, Alice Tan Ridley, performing in the subway — I actually saw her several times singing Tina Turner’s “What’s Love Got To Do With It?”
On America’s Got Talent, which is hosted by Nick Cannon, Ridley sang Etta James‘ “At Last.” She wowed the judges and made it to the next round. There might be another award-winner in the Sidibe family.
