Landau Murphy to perform at youth shelter fundraiser
CHARLESTON, W.Va. –As a teenager, Logan County native Landau Eugene Murphy Jr. was forced to sleep in his car, but after catapulting to music stardom on national television, Murphy is returning to West Virginia to try to help other homeless and at-risk teenagers avoid that early fate.
Murphy will provide the entertainment for Daymark Inc.’s spring fundraiser on May 18. Daymark runs shelters and group homes for homeless youth in the Kanawha Valley. They offer crisis and emergency services, counseling, GED programs and job training, among other services. Daymark has served about 4,000 youths and families in the past year.
