For one-night only on Tuesday, February 28, America’s Got Talent season-five winner, Michael Grimm will take the stage at Freedom Beat inside the Downtown Grand. The no-cover performance will begin at 8 p.m. inside the food/live music venue that highlights the best of America’s tastes and tunes.
With his soulful voice and earthy, Southern manner, Michael Grimm charmed millions of viewers as a contestant on Season Five of NBC’s popular “America’s Got Talent.” Parlaying his substantial singer-songwriter appeal into a first-place finish, Michael took home the $1 million prize and headlined the first-ever national “America’s Got Talent Tour.” Following that, he toured with the legendary Stevie Nicks and Heart, playing to arenas of 20,000.
Following his win and the release of his debut major label CD, Michael turned to the business of live shows, giving back to his fans what they had given to him. Throughout 2011 and 2012, he’s played venues across America, from California to New York. Among many others, he headlined the Jimmy Rodgers Festival in Meridian, Mississippi, and became the first-ever resident headliner at the popular Ovation Showroom at Green Valley Ranch Resort in Las Vegas.
In June 2012, in response to fans wanting more recorded music, Michael self-released a fun, summer CD entitled “Gumbo.” Shortly following Grimm’s indie release, Free Roll Records released “Moment In Time” in August.
Michael spent most of 2013 on the road touring the world, including first-time performances in Costa Rica, St. Martin and Shanghai, China.
In 2014 Michael began work on his next album entitled “Grimm,” which is a collection of brand new original songs written and composed by Michael himself. Production was held at Studio 824 in Las Vegas with the assistance of long-time friend and fellow musician Jamie Borden. “Grimm” was a fan-funded album and released June 15, 2015 during Michael’s headlining summer, limited engagement, residency at Hard Rock Las Vegas.
With this album came a new image, a slight rebrand and a new high energy sound that can be experienced live with Michael’s National and International concerts throughout 2015 & 2016.
Creativity never stops for Michael as he starts work on a new project during his off time from performing.
