Landau Eugene Murphy Jr., the million-dollar winner of NBC Television’s America’s Got Talent is bringing his “That’s Life” tour to the DC/MD/VA/WV area for a series of highly anticipated springtime concerts, with shows in Manassas, Martinsburg, Culpeper, Bethesda and Winchester.
Murphy is best known for his smooth, crooning style on classics from the Great American Songbook, which wowed AGT judges and over 14 million TV viewers each week, and for his heart-stopping duet with Patti Labelle during the AGT finals. The dreadlock wearing former car washer’s first CD “That’s Life” debuted at #1, and Landau’s sold out tour has taken him from Las Vegas to New York to Hollywood and overseas to China and Europe, where he performed on-base for U.S. troops stationed there. .

Also appearing will be the former lead vocalists from three of music biggest bands, The Temptations, Platters and Drifters and the Swing Machine Big Band. The concert is a benefit for the Spring Mills Student Choir, who plan to join Murphy on stage during the performance.
