Her mother(below) I have also seen before Gabourey became famous. I saw he mother singing at the 59th street subway station before several years back. Talent must run in the family because her mother is a really good singer. I highly recommend taking a moment to pause and listen to some of the musicians that play/perform in the subways stations or even out on the street. I've heard some really good music. There is a trio that sings classic Motown Temptation hits who are incredible! I see them mostly at the 59th street station or sometimes at 42nd street station, the blue line A, C & E. Look out for them.
