'Idol' Contestant Talks About Missing Mom

1/29/2010 1:28 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Angela Martin -- the "American Idol" contestant whose "A.I." dreams have been derailed twice by personal turmoil -- just appeared on the Ryan Seacrest radio show to make another plea to find her missing mother.

Angela Martin: Click to listen

Martin's story is heartbreaking: She's made it to Hollywood twice before auditioning again this season -- but both times, she left the show early. Her father was murdered during her "Idol" run in 2007 and in 2008 she had to quit because of a court appearance.

Now Angela has made it to Hollywood again -- but this accomplishment has been marred by the mysterious disappearance of her mother Viola Brown Martin -- who went missing the day after a family Christmas dinner back in December.

Saturday Afternoon, you crack me up. I too have quite a bit of education. I am going for another degree right now. Most of the "educated" people I go to school with can't spell or speak correctly. It's pretty sad when they give out degrees like Pez.

I can't even begin to imagine how she is feeling. I will be praying for her and the safe return of her mother.
Btw, the racists that always want to stir up drama on these blogs, go find something positive and productive to do with your life instead of putting other people down.

WHERE'S THE LOVE Y'ALL!?

Her mother is on the America's Most Wanted website.

You don't go to college to learn how to spell. You should know how to spell before you get there. It's not the fault of the colleges. Everybody makes a spelling mistake every now and then.

???????????????????????    

I am sorry but I see this bitch as an uncaring daughter...if my mother was missing...you can bet my life would be put on hold until I find out what has happened to her. Dont think I could concentrate on anything else unless I was a heartless bitch with no love for anyone but myself....the bitch needs to quit idol and act like a human being instead of some animal that doesnt care about their parents and go on with life. this bitch is as selfish as a dog with a bone!

8. #2 JOhn. What's more apparent here is that you were raised by the stupidest parents alive. Maybe single parent? Hopefully they still aren't. You are a waste of life. You really should end it instead of taking up space.

=====================================================

I'm thinking single parent -- probably a crabby, hostile, single parent.

Hey All, please be considerate this is a very true story. It was reported on all of our Local news outlets here in Chicago, the mother's boyfriend was the last person to see Angela's mom that christmas day, she left to go visit another daughter across town for the holiday. Please stop making this about race @ JOHN!

And Kudos to you ROGER, I am a proud owner of a MBA also from Harvard. We don't have to prove ourselves to the likes of that John person, just pray for peace.

Ciao

By the way Angela auditioned before her Mom came up missing. These are pre-recorded sessions that started back in August of 2009. Anglea is a very nice young lady. This is tragic.
