America's Got Talent – Mississippi contestant sings to get his grandmother out of Katrina trailer

“It is really not that important that I win the contest or not,” Grimm, 30, told the Sun Herald on Wednesday. “I just hope it leads to something, so I can raise enough money to help my grandparents move out of their small trailer in Picayune.”

Grimm’s grandparents, Tommy and Laura Butters, lost their home in Hancock County when Hurricane Katrina hit the Coast in 2005.“Since then they have lived in this little trailer in the woods and my grandmother is miserable there,” Grimm said. “Now the Coast is dealing with the oil issue and there is a lot going on there.“I think entertainers should bring more attention to what is going on in Mississippi. That is what I am doing.”  h/t Sun Herald

  1. You Go Michael! That’s exactly right but not just entertainers, our own government seems to have forgotten all about the people of Katrina. Way too much going wrong in this country these days. I hope you win and things go right for you and your grandmother. She’s precious, unselfish, loving and obedient to God. That’s what matters and God loves humble people. He will richly reward her before she knows it. You stay strong in there MG I’m pulling for you. You’re the BEST!
