This season on NBC’s America’s Got Talent, there is a particular singer that I and the whole state of West Virginia are rooting for: Landau Eugene Murphy Jr. Murphy, a car washer from Logan, West Virginia, auditioned this season in New York City. When he first came out, judges Sharon Osbourne, Piers Morgan and Howie Mandel did not know what to expect from the 36 year-old Logan native, but when he started singing Frank Sinatra’s “I’ve Got You Under My Skin”, Murphy impressed the judges. All three judges gave Landau a standing ovation. Here is the video from his audition:
Murphy went on to the Vegas round and sailed through with his rendition of Sinatra’s “I Get No Kick From Champagne”.
Tonight at 9 pm eastern/ pacific, the pride of Logan, WV, Landau Murphy performs for the first time in the AGT competition round and he has people ready to call to vote for him. I also am going to watch and vote for him. This guy is a rare talent and for him to make it would bring joy to the whole state of West Virginia.
