SORT BY Relevancy
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.
Michael Grimm was the VIP Guest Star sharing a WORLD PREMIER of his new album GRIMM (out June 15th) - and the response was so overwhelming - we're sharing his interview again for the Friday Night Dance Party! In Hour 2 - you'll hear some favorite recent guests from Miles High Productions!
Michael comes by his rootsy bonafides the authentic way, as a true son of the South. From age five, he grew up in Waveland, a small Gulf town in Mississippi that sits between New Orleans and Biloxi. “It’s a very humble, charming town. I loved growing up there,” he says. “My dad was not making any money,” Michael explains, “so my mother cleaned churches to try to pay the bills. We lived in a little camper that had holes in the floor. I remember if you looked straight through the hole in my bedroom floor, you could see the ground underneath. The funny thing is, I thought I had everything in the world. Looking back, all I owned were a few hand-me-down toys, but it didn’t bother me at the time.”
When Michael turned 13, he was discovered by Ann McNair, a singer with both Gospel and Nashville roots. She gave him a guitar, showed him the first three chords, and taught him how to write songs. At 15, Ann got Michael his first indie record deal. But “I knew just being a singer wouldn’t put bread on the table. I also needed to be a musician,” he says. So his entire 16th year, while everyone else was outside playing and getting on, he locked himself up in his bedroom and learned how to play his guitar.
At 17, Michael released a single called “John Wayne and Jesus.” With that song, he received the first-ever Country Christian Music Association (CCMA) “Star of Tomorrow” Covenant Award. “I’ll never forget that night at Ryman Auditorium,” he says, the Ryman being the original location of the Grand Ole Opry. “It gives me chills to this day.”

So we saw Congressman Michael Grimm threaten a TV reporter that was caught on camera.
It was pretty ugly.
Some background: Congressman Grimm – a Republican from New York State -- was commenting on the state of the union. The reporter then asked him a question about an investigation into Grimm’s campaign finances. That’s when Grimm made comments about breaking the reporter in 2 – when he thought they were off air.
Here are the lessons many of us who have been in front of a camera know – and you should too.
First, the camera is always on.
Second, Grimm could have easily stopped this episode from ever happening.
Third, never piss off a reporter publicly.
Fourth, apologize gracefully.
Here’s my take:
Grimm and other lawmakers need to assess who they answer to. And it is not the media. It is the voting public. You are a servant to the people. When you can speak to the people you do it as if it is an honor – not something you are entitled to.
After the State of the Union Rep. Michael Grimm, R-New York threatened a reporter during a live interview: "I will break you in half like a boy"
