In just a few short minutes on America’s Got Talent, Alice Tan Ridley boldly made herself known to the world when her phenomenal rendition of the Etta James classic, “At Last”, wowed the judges, blew away the audience, and caused the entire nation to take notice. Ridley’s raw power and charm immediately resonated with the judges, and she was sent to Hollywood to compete in the finals. For many, this was their first exposure to Alice’s gifted abilities, despite her many years of experience as a singer. Millions of fans around the world viewed her performances on YouTube. Such a captivating performer could only go unnoticed by the masses for so long by staying underground. Alice was one of New York City’s best-kept secrets: a jewel kept hidden deep below the city in the subway platforms.
