David found his birth mother after she spotted him on TV, auditioning for the second season — hooray!
After 25 years of separation, David expressed to the judges during his audition that he was singing for his birth mother in hopes of reuniting with her.
“When [David's] episode of X Factor aired in Brazil, a woman named Luciene Lima recognized the baby pics shown in David’s segment and had a gut feeling he was hers,” sources tell TMZ.
“Luciene went through the Brazilian court system to trace her adoption — and her findings led her back to David. Luciene, not knowing how to reach out to her long lost son, contacted the local media. A local paper was able to track David down in the U.S. and tell him about his mother. A DNA test has not been performed, but so far everything matches: the birth certificate, the orphanage David came from and the timeline,” the source continues.
A close friend of David’s tells TMZ, “David is so happy — and he can’t wait to meet her for the first time.”
We’re so happy for David and his mother! But the real question is — do YOU think David can win X Factor, HollywoodLifers?
