The smooth and somewhat raspy voice of Michael Grimm, America’s Got Talent contestant has made it to the Top10. Michael Grimm is a singer to watch in this show as he competes for one million dollar prize.
Michael Grimm, America’s Got Talent contestant, not to be confused with politician Michael Grimm from New York, has a wonderful raspy, soulful voice that is very appealing to his listeners. When I first listened to Michael Grimm on America’s Got Talent, I was touched by his very moving performance. Michael Grimm has the type of voice that compels you to listen to his soul.
Born in southern Mississippi and raised by his grandparents, Michael Grimm has said that he’s performing on America’s Got Talent not only for himself but also for his grandparents. You see, his grandparents lost everything five years ago when Hurricane Katrina hit that part of the country and Michael would love to win the million dollar top prize to buy his grandparents a new home.
Although Michael Grimm moved to Las Vegas in the hopes of finding a steady career, he’s had difficulty finding a major record company to back him. In an interview with the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Michael states that record companies want more of a pop sound than his soulful blues sound.
America’s Got Talent has given Michael Grimm nationwide exposure and the response of viewers for Michael’s talent has been tremendous. He has received standing ovations and has now joined the ranks of the top 10 on America’s Got Talent. Even Ozzy Osbourne, famed husband of Judge Sharon Osbourne, is rooting for Michael Grimm.
There are a lot of great performers in America’s Got Talent top 10, and I do think that Michael Grimm will make the top 5. Whether or not his soulful-blues type voice will win the hearts and votes of viewers to become #1 remains to be seen. Regardless, he is a singer-musician to watch in the days to come and he’s a pleasure to listen to.
