X Factor Finalist Finds His Real Mom Thanks to the Show [VIDEO]
The 26-year-old David, who is in the final 16 told the judges during his first audition that he was singing for his birth mother, who had given him up for adoption in
Brazil and he has never met her.
Sources told TMZ when his 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. We're told 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.
TMZ sources say 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.
