Born in 1979 in Fort Carson, Colorado, blues and soul artist Michael Grimm is most known for his win on season five of America’s Got Talent. He auditioned for the show in 2010 and ended up winning the competition. Afterwards, he headlined the AGT Tour Show until November of 2010. On September 29, 2010, Grimm signed a record deal with Epic Records, with his first album released in May of the following year.
That album, self-titled, peaked at Number Thirteen on the U.S. charts, selling over 22,000 copies. On it, Grimm worked with Grammy-award winning producer Don Was, who worked with The Rolling Stones, Elton John and B.B. King. The album, which contains a sense of tradition in the songs, also featured the single “Fallin’,” which peaked at Number Eighty-Two on the U.S. Pop charts, and Number Eighty-Six on the Canadian Pop charts.
In 2010, Grimm performed at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. In December of that same year, he and Smokey Robinson raised more than $1 million at the 37th Annual Candlelight Concert.
Before America’s Got Talent, he had performed in Las Vegas casinos for eleven years. When he was a kid, he was influenced by artists like Ernest Tubb, Hank Williams, George Jones and Ray Price. At the age of eleven, he sang at a wedding, which helped start his career at a karaoke bar for the next several years. When he was fifteen, he started writing his own songs and then taught himself how to play guitar. A few years later, he was picked up as a guitarist and back-up vocalist for the “Legends in Concert” Biloxi show. When he was twenty-one, that gig moved him to Las Vegas for the same show.
