Michael Grimm and “America the Beautiful”

Michael Grimm, the 5th season winner of America’s Got Talent, recorded his version of “America the Beautiful” in one incredible take!

Tracked by Bobby Ferrari at Skeleton Key Recording in Las Vegas, the track has a very rich and powerful sound. The piano’s character and lush overtones are beautifully captured by an sE4400a, retaining a wide dynamic range for that ‘in the room’ feel.

Michael’s elastic, single-take performance required no vocal tuning at all. Recorded with the acclaimed V7 dynamic microphone, the depth of detail is stunning, with every nuance of Michael’s voice accounted for. Check out this fresh take on a classic!
