Landau to Perform National Anthem at Marshall University Football Game
From the Marshall Parthenon
The allure of fame and fortune can often keep one in the bright lights of Hollywood, but jazz singer and West Virginia native Landau Murphy remains loyal to his hometown of Logan County even after years of stardom.
Landau Eugene Murphy Jr. rocketed into the spotlight in 2011 after winning the sixth season of America’s Got Talent. His win took him all around the globe, but he still calls West Virginia home.
“You know how the quote goes, there’s no place like home,” Murphy said. “Even as I climbed this ladder of the musical entertainment business, I’ve always felt like I didn’t want to take something away from the state that actually made me.”
