I’m not really a country fan and I haven’t watched “America’s Got Talent”, but after watching this video online, I’m a fan and I will tuning in just to watch this very humble Marine vet hopefully catapult to stardom.  With all the faux singers out there with equally faux passion and talent, it’s refreshing to see talent like this come up from the coal mines of Kentucky, America’s most productive coal field.

Finally, an inspirational song sung by an extraordinary and talented man—right when we needed a whole lot of uplifting.  Here’s a video from “America’s Got Talent”, featuring Jimmy Rose, a humble Marine vet who once worked the coal mines four days after graduating from high school at age 18.  Jimmy saw first-hand how dangerous coal mining is and said…

“It’s such a hard life, and it’s dangerous.  It kind of made me think…’If you’re gonna risk your life, then risk it for your country, ya know.  It’s more than worth it’.  When you’re getting shot at, you look at things a lot different, and you look at life a lot different.  And to make it home from something like that, I feel fortunate…” 

He then joined the U.S. Marines where he learned to play the guitar while fighting for his country and his life.  He took to the America’s Got Talent” stage and sang a song he himself wrote, entitled “Coal Keeps The Lights On”—a beautiful country ballad, paying homage to his life in the coal mines and to his hometown.  He sang it with such heart and soul that it makes you stop, listen and learn…

The show’s host, Nick Cannon, talked with Jimmy before he went on stage.  It would have been nice if Nick had shook Jimmy’s hand and thanked him for his service to our country, but thankfully, Howie Mandell had the good sense to thank him for all of us. 

May God bless Jimmy and inspire him to write and sing more uplifting songs that, in turn, inspire all of us.  You can wish him a very Happy Birthday on his Facebook page.

This is the finals.  Will Jimmy win?  I’m rooting for him.  “America’s Got Talent” airs Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 9 PM ET / 8 PM CST.  Check local listings for airing times in your area.

Good luck, Jimmy, and thank you so much for your service to this great country of ours.  You are what America is all about.  You are a large part of the essence that has made America the greatest country on earth.  Semper Fi…

Lovingly,

QueenBee
