But, imagine having been chosen for a movie while taking a walk with your mother on the streets?

    For instance, the R&B singer Tony Braxton was discovered in a gas station! The singer was at a gas station singing to herself when a producer heard her and asked her to record a demo. And then, she was in no time a superstar performing before millions of fans.
