The Sound of Music
Special encore presentation Saturday 8/7c. Watch the special online now.
Michael Grimm grew up in South Mississippi where his grandparents raised him. His grandmother took him to church on Sundays, where she played the piano at the service. This was where Michael fell in love with music. His grandmother inspired him and encouraged him to pursue his newfound love. At the age of 12, he started working at local bars. As he grew older, he perfected his guitar playing, vocals and songwriting skills, listening to different styles of music while he continued to write his own. In 2000, Michael was encouraged to move to Las Vegas because of the abundance of work. He worked in Las Vegas with many different artists, learning and playing a wide variety of musical styles. He eventually formed his own three-piece band, working in small local bars, casino lounges, and a few Vegas steakhouses. When he auditioned for America's Got Talent, he had a goal. That goal was to show his appreciation to his grandparents. Just like many others, his grandparents lost everything in the Hurricane Katrina disaster. Michael would like to offer his grandparents a home. America's Got Talent can be the vehicle to help him achieve his goal.
