Here's he is on YOUTUBE.

Another video in which his "backstory" is told: HERE.

Here is id doing When A Man Loves A Woman...with strings backup and electric guitar.

Michael Grimm the Mississippi blues singer with the hard-luck backstory was named the winner of America's Got Talent on Wednesday, besting favorite Jackie Evancho, the 10-year-old opera phenom with the preternaturally mature voice.

He's going to buy his grandparents a new home as they lost theirs in Hurricane Katrina.

Not sure I'd call him a MS Blues Singer in view of what I know of the blues from Mudcat, but I think they are "coached" on what songs to sing, so I hope he gets a chance to sing more than what I think of as more "pop/blues" songs. I may be wrong, but that what I hear. Still, I think it is wonderful that a young man with a guitar and harmonica has won and it's great he will be able to help his grandparents!
