About Michael Grimm
American singer/songwriter Michael Grimm has an estimated net worth of $3 million. Majority, if not most, of his fortune was earned from being the winner of the fifth season of Americas Got Talent. Born Michael Joseph Grimm on December 30, 1979 in Fort Carson, Colorado, he was raised by his grandparents in Waveland Mississippi but moved to Slidell, Louisiana. He now resides in Henderson, Nevada.
As an everyday guy who is trying to make it big in the music industry, Grimm auditioned for Americas Got Talent in 2010. His performance earned him a nod and he made it through to Las Vegas Week. He was being criticized by Piers Morgan for performing more than 90 seconds at Vegas Week. However, later in the competition, Sharon Osbourne revealed that her husband Ozzy Osbourne was rooting for him.
Michael Grimm is known as the Southern Soul singer during the competition. His heart-felt performance of When Man Loves a Woman, dedicated to his long-term girlfriend Lucie Zolcerova as her inspiration, made him the worthy winner, thus securing a $1 million contract. She proposed to her on the Ellen DeGeneres show. Some of his winnings were used to build a new house for his grandparents after they lost everything to Hurricane Katrina. Since becoming the winner of AGT, he is the headliner of the tour shows and it gets better for the talented singer. He performed in the 37th Candlelight concert along with Smokey Robinson.
Grimm has also signed to Epic Records. In the spring of 2011, his self-titled album was released. It debuted at No. 13 in the US Pop Music Charts and sold approximately 23,000 copies nationwide. The released single Falling was written and recorded by Alicia Keys. He was previously signed to Mattikay Records and released three albums before he won in AGT. His last album with the recording company, Leave Your Hat On, did relatively well and stole the hot spot in the US Heat Charts. It also peaked at No. 19 in the US R&B chart. His contract with the record label ended in 2010.
