I would think that she has "America's Got Talent" money by now.. She should be able to afford new clothing and a decent place to practice. They get paid for each $how.

Truth    

YEA, SHE'S TOTALLY FUGLY AND WEIGHTS A HALF TON BUT HER VOICE IS PRETTY GOOD. SHE HAS THE OLD SKOOL SINGING VOICE YOU DONT GET IN TODAYS AUTO-TUNED ELETRO POP LIP SYNCING WORLD (AKA BRITNEY, KE$HA, KERI HILSON, CELINE DION, ET AL).

SoWhat    

Just becasue she's on 'America's Got Talent' she can no longer make a living the same way she's been making for over a decade? What do ya'll want her to do? Does she have a contract yet? NO! So you guys need to SHUT UP and be supportive.

I admire this woman. She raised two kids on her own by singing in the subway instead of Welfare and food stamps. She has a fantastic voice. I'm expecting her to win the whole thing.

hey wonderful she is making money but how do you know she raised her kids without welfare and foodstamps? I seriously doubt she made that much money all those years doing this and would bet she did collect welfare or foodstamps to. She should of at some point while raising her children gotten a real job that had health insurance for her children. I am sure that was given to her as well. I laugh at ignorarance to think this woman was some great thing that went to the subway to completly support her kids singing down there. come back to reality. She didnt want a real job. She has a good voice but so do alot of people and they still get jobs and support their families. Oh and if she stated she did it without welfare and you believed her, your just not to bright

"Her performance was fare."

LOL TMZ, you crack me up!

How about this: Her music was meant to touch commuter's hearts, but instead seemed to touch the third rail. . .
