Al Motta is the father of Sugar. He made his one episode debut in I Am Unicorn, the second episode of Season Three. He was previously mentioned in the prior episode The Purple Piano Project.
Al Motta is portrayed by Rick Pasqualone.
Since Mr. Motta loves the arts, he donates three repossessed pianos from his store, "Motta's Pianos" to the Glee Club. It is also revealed that he is Sugar Motta's father.
Mr. Motta makes a private donation to McKinley High, so they can afford a second Glee Club (later called "The Troubletones") starring his daughter Sugar, since she was rejected from New Directions in The Purple Piano Project when she auditioned with Big Spender. He also pays to have Shelby Corcoran tracked down so she can come and direct the new Glee Club since she is "The best show choir director money can buy." This is the first and last time Al Motta is seen in Season Three and he doesn't make an appearance at all in Season Four.
Al was mentioned by Sugar reminding everyone that he isn't in the Mafia.
It can be assumed that Al Motta is a generous man, since he willingly donates three pianos to the Glee Club. He loves his daughter so much that he paid for a second Glee Club just for her, the Troubletones, and a very extravagant party. He also calls her a "super-nova" which shows just how much he thinks of Sugar. It can also be assumed that he is very wealthy. In Heart, it was also suggested that he works in the Mafia.
