PINEVILLE, Ky. (WYMT) - America's Got Talent contestant Jimmy Rose spoke to students in his native Bell County on Thursday.
At Pineville Schools, his alma mater, Rose spoke to the students about setting goals and following their dreams. He discussed going to college and future jobs for them. He also shared with students how he never gave up on his dream of singing for people.
"I want to tell you guys, if you have a dream, if you have a goal in life, don't ever, never, I mean never, let anybody tell you you can't do something. When somebody tells you you're not good enough, light a fire inside yourself and prove them wrong," Rose said to the students.
Pineville High School students gave him several gifts including Pineville shirts.
Rose also spoke to Bell County High School students on Thursday afternoon.
