Alice Tan Ridley was voted to the semi-finals on America's Got Talent. Ms. Ridley sang Gladys Knight's classic hit, "Midnight Train To Georgia."

Her rendition of the song even had Sharon Osbourne saying she wanted to get on the train with her. She also described her singing as, "the embodiment of soul".

Talk about progress. Well, alright then Ms. Ridley.

Wonder why there are so many

Wonder why there are so many illiterate, backward, and ignorant people commenting when there are so many chances to get yourself an education. This is scary that there are so many idiots in the world. There are ugly, beautiful, bad, and good people in all races, of all shades and anyone who needs to be reminded of that should just stay under the rock you live under...or jump off a building, just do the rest of us a favor and disappear, please and thanks. Btw, that woman is a beautiful, dark skinned woman who used her beautiful voice to help raise her family by singing in subway stations, the people on here who are saying these hateful and ridiculous things: did you not have that love from your parents as a child? People who are secure and confident within themselves do not need to put other people down the way some of you have been doing, nowadays the rest of us can't enjoy a website without being bombarded with f*cking idiots, smh, all you hateful a-holes should feel like the huge stinking pile of sh!t that you are, good day.

Lmao your so disgusted by the

Lmao your so disgusted by the negative that you came on just to respond to it lol. bitch your on the same site everyone else is If someone is ugly then they are ugly too fuckin bad i didnt shit her out her momma did. nobody said singing in the subway wasnt noble getting a real fuckin job would have been better but hey it worked for her and her daughter is a semi star now so it worked for them. If she did become a big star which we all know she wont, then hey good for her, but she is to old to start in the industry , she is unattractive, and she is just an ok singer , stop acting like this is shit thats untrue

Came here to check out the

Came here to check out the site and came across a bunch of ignorant sh!t, I, like other intelligent people, judge others based on things I know about them like say, their personalities, if they have a stanky ass attitude then they're ugly as f*ck, if not, or if I don't even know them, then I don't talk a bunch of mean, negative and uncalled for sh!t, that's how I do things, I'm not stupid and shallow, and I do not let the media define beauty for me, I think for myself, leader, not a f*cking follower. Who says this woman is too old or too whatever to follow her dream? It's that kind of thinking that hold ppl like you back like Marley said "Emancipate yourself from mental slavery, none but ourselves can free our minds" think for your damn self and don't let the media tell you that only Beyonce, or Kelly, or Rihanna can dream, and achieve a career in the music industry. If we supported each other we could achieve so much, smh...I'm done.

If that were true there would

If that were true there would be real singers in the industry now you stupid cum stain. but there arent because we are no longer in the days of talent speaking for itself , if we were the very dark and very lovely india arie would be making beyonce money and have a cover girl contract. but she instead has to work extra hard just to have modest success when she sings circles around the light girls , rhi rhi cant sing at all yet is the biggest star out there, the media can only go by what the consumer wants and if you fake bitches were not trying to comment just to comment and seem smart then you would just admitt that the cards are stacked against anyone who is starting a career later in life. especially one who is just an ok subway singer . the fact that she is not a good looking woman also does not help, who the fuck is her target audience going to be,she can only ride off of being gabbys mom for so long.If you dont agree fine but It is a fact. should it be that way NO but is it that way yes , because as much as fake bitches like you talk all that we are all beautiful crap , you only support certain types wether you acknowledge it or not. In the industry halle berry is considered the worlds most beautiful yet in my opinion stacy dash is killing her. I love dark skin , but if your ugly your ugly, no matter what

Black people are truly crabs in a barell beating down your own, then you like to blame us white people for your issues. You do urself injustice on ur own.

You sound incredibly

You sound incredibly ignorant. In once sentence you say we are "beating down our own" and then in the next "you blackies...". So what was your point? That's it's bad to beat each other down but OK for you as a white person to do it? Ok makes a lot of sense...idiot! Furthermore, go read the comments on TMZ talking about Amy Winehouse or whatever other busted white chick and lets see how many white commentators tear "their own" down. What some people said about her mom was plain mean, but who are you to make a point blank judgement about all back people then try and insult us by saying "blackies". I love my brown skin and clearly you do too since your on YBF, so try again next time with the insult...

Beauty is in the eye of the

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. If someone thinks she's pretty (as the person she bred Gabby with obviously did) who is to say they're lying. STOP being so flikkin close minded. Somebody may think you're not attractive and the next person may think you're beautiful...so those people aren't stupid or fake for thinking Gabby's mother is pretty. Stop hatin and worry about what YOU think.

I love, love, love this

I love, love, love this woman's voice. I would see her ALL the time on 34th St singing in the station and she was just amazing. There was never a time that I walked past her, without stopping for a few moments to listen. Her voice is so powerful. I'm beyond happy for her family and wish them the best!

Let's get to the root of the

Let's get to the root of the issue. Society has made black people ashamed of their own race. That is a shame. Now we have to look to MTV and BET for our images? We are told that a down chick is one that goes to the strip club and it is okay to be a side chick. Today's media has made black women question their own beauty. That is the problem. We have younger women really believing lies about themselves. For all the real confident black and beautiful women continue to embrace yourself. Embrace you skin tone, your nose, your lips, and your butt. The same figure by the way that every movie star is trying to imitate right now. To say that you " don't make the rules" says a lot about who you are as a person. It says that you don't love yourself. Black, no matter how black, is still beautiful! Love oneself! Peace!

lol I dont make the rules

lol I dont make the rules because i dont work in hollywood . bitches like you are the same ones who talk all this black is beautiful shit then set flavor of love and all those other cooning ass shows to record on your tivo, then go and fry your hair because your sooooo proud of being black lol please bitch give me a break , you know damn will she and her fat ass daughter are ugly as hell. thats a fact there are alot of down right banging dark women in hollywood that dont get the shine they deserve because Black people hate themselves most of all and wont want those images embraced bet is the biggest offender bet hates black women so much they wont even employ them rocsi is spanish. you dont love being black if you could change it you would lol the ones who shout that sh the loudest are the most insecure. proud people dont get riled up about things like this they just keep it moving, its ok for someone to be an ugly tar baby , thats her curse it isnt a reflection of all darkies some are very beautiful, these two just happen to have too many strikes against them, fat can be ok alone, black can be ok alone, ugly can be ok alone with the right personality but you put them all together and you just have some sad shit.

Beautiful! I pray all her

Beautiful! I pray all her dreams come true, beautiful woman and beautiful voice! It makes me sad and frustrated when other black people say dumb stuff about dark complexions, one of the reasons this world is so messed up is because of idiots like that, there are beautiful people of all complexions, what is so wrong with being darker? Ugh, I guess the world would be boring without idiots...

umm whats a gray person site?

umm whats a gray person site? Im a black woman and these are societies facts , even bet doesnt put dark folks on tv, dont even allow black ass people in the front rows on 106 and park again i dont make the rules and dont like them either , i believe talent is talent but if your going to be ass ugly your talent has to be on another level, nobody sings like aretha and even she cant make any music today because she is a slob now sad and unfair but reality non the less kelly price was better then mariah and everyone else when she came out but where did she go, she was a beautiful chocolate woman but was a slob and dark skin, and this is a color motivated world , nobody hates dark skin more then black people every rap video has any and everything but dark women so if you gonna be mad be mad at yourselves and 50 cent lol

Answer me this , why do

Answer me this , why do dark-skinned black people think that it is ok to disrespect light skinned blck people but anyone says anything about dark skin it is the worst atrocity. Yall get on this site and talk the most trash about light skin celebs all the time and thats ok , but it is self hate once it is adark skin person. GTFOH. Black foles are just fucked, always thinkn they opinion matters the most.

When I heard her sing At Last

When I heard her sing At Last on America's Got Talent I thought I was in heaven. This woman can sing!! I hope she wins the contest and goes far with her career. She proves it's never too late. If singers didn't use sex to sell music now days, Alice would have been discovered a long time ago. Now it's about how you look. But I wish her the best.
