Tonight, one of New York’s own needs your support! Alice Tan Ridley, one of Arts for Transit’s Music Under New York musicians has made it to the semifinals of America’s Got Talent and will be on air live tonight. Ridley, along with eleven other semifinal acts will be performing tonight. Only four acts from that twelve will go on to the next round, voting is very important! You can vote by text message, phone, and online, ten times per each method.
I’ve unfortunately never seen Alice live, but I’ve definitely seen the videos on YouTube and she is phenomenal. Back in June Sheryl (aka Bitchcakes) from Musings of an Irate Commuter posted a video of her singing I Will Survive, and I must say it brightened up a crappy morning. Alice has been singing in the subway for twenty years and I’m sure she has brightened many of our mornings, afternoons or evenings. She is talked about in the media for being Precious actress Gabourey Sidibe’s mother, but long before that, she was our subway singer. So New Yorkers, tonight is the night to show her your support.
America’s Got Talent will be airing tonight at 9 PM on NBC. Voting will be open from 11 PM (when the show is over) until 1 AM. You can vote 10 times per method!
