The parents of an eastern Kentucky man who has made it to the finals of America's Got Talent tell us they couldn't be happier for him.
Jimmy Rose, of Bell County, will compete in the finals of the show tonight. However, his parents couldn't make the trip to New York to see him, because of his mother's illness.
They say Rose told them he will make them proud.
"We've very proud of him. You don't know how much. I'm trying not to cry. He knows that I'm sick and I'll be right there rooting him on all the way," Virginia Middleton told us.
Rose's parents say they plan to watch the finals of the show with other relatives and close friends.
