Event

Landau Eugene Murphy Jr at the Strand Theatre
Landau Eugene Murphy Jr will be joining us in West Virginia for his Holiday Show.

When Landau Eugene Murphy Jr. showed up to audition for America's Got Talent, he was singing to pass the time while grinding out a living washing cars, and the only "nice" clothes he owned were the ones on his back; a pair of jeans, a modest button down striped shirt and jacket.

Fortunately, you don't need a large wardrobe to win America's heart.  You need talent and Landau has truckloads of that.  Since wowing the judges with his interpretations of classics by the likes of Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin and walking away with the million dollar grand prize in front of 14 million weekly viewers on AGT, Landau has released his Columbia Records debut "That's Life" (the CD hit #1 on the Billboard Jazz chart and was produced by Grammy winner Steve Tyrell, who also helmed Rod Stewart's Great American Songbook album) and has performed all over the country, from the California State Fair to the New York's famous Apollo Theatre, Caesars Palace in Las Vegas to the Marina Civic Center in Florida and all points in between.

Along the way, he has appeared on The Today Show, The View, CNN, Fox and Friends, The Wendy Williams Show, The Talk, Anderson Cooper, Tom Joyner, Sirius XM, NPR and dozens of other outlets, was named his home state's "West Virginian of the Year" (where he has performed a series of sold out concerts helping raise over a half million dollars for state charities), played a special command performance at the Governors Inauguration, won Reality TV Personality of the Year in Hollywood, and was honored to perform with his band for U.S. Troops in Germany.

But all that success hasn't made Landau forget his roots.  He was born in the Mountain State of West Virginia and continues to live there rather than move to entertainment industry hubs like Los Angeles or New York.  "West Virginia will always be my home," says Landau, "and home and family are the most important thing in the world to me. I can always fly out to L.A. or New York for work, but being here helps keep me humble and grounded.  I'm just very fortunate to be living my dream."

For many winners of television talent competitions, the ride is short, but for Landau, more than two years after winning America's Got Talent, things couldn't be busier.  A book co-authored with award-winning writer Rick Robinson chronicling Landau's All American success story called LANDAU: FROM WASHING CARS TO HOLLYWOOD STAR, debuted at #1 on the Amazon.com Jazz Book chart.  Landau's CHRISTMAS MADE FOR TWO is an album full of both classic and brand new original holiday favorites ("Christmas is by far my favorite time of the year").  The CD features a guest appearance by former Temptations lead vocalist Glenn Leonard reprising his role on "Silent Night" from the Temptations Christmas album.  Landau's Christmas CD is now a best-selling fundraising vehicle for The Children's Home Society charity, and the holiday season found Landau guest hosting a show on the Sirius/XM "Holly" channel while crisscrossing the country on a sold out Christmas tour with his mentor Leonard and former lead vocalists from The Platters and Drifters.  Landau also performed his first ever concerts with two complete symphony orchestras and visited Asia for the first time, at the headliner at a special charity benefit at the Mercedes Benz Arena in Shanghai China for AEG Live.  But also penciled into Landau's busy calendar is spending time at his modest new home in the West Virginia hills.  "I've got my home studio, plenty of room for my family and a big beautiful mountain behind me. I'm so thankful to God everyday for giving me these blessings, and a bigger stage to perform on."

And, yes, he still sings while he washes cars.  But now, those cars belong to Landau.
