*The subway-singing mom of “Precious” star Gabourey Sidibe says she is planning to try her luck on NBC’s “America’s Got Talent” when it returns for a new season on June 1.
“I would not be entering the competition if I did not think I could do well. Singing is what I do and I know I can do this,” she is quoted as saying. “I haven’t told Gabby yet but I’m sure she will support me just like I support her as a performer.”
Tan, who performs regularly at subway stations, added that she is “proud” of her daughter’s success and hopes that the NBC competition will give her “the chance to shine.”
