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.”
Landau Eugene Murphy Jr., the Soul-and-Sinatra singing season six winner of NBC TV’s top-rated summer show “America’s Got Talent,” gives the family of a special needs child a much-needed free vacation.
Murphy, who is performing daily through July 17th at the Globe Theater inside Busch Gardens, is giving the family of Tameeka Thomas of Charleston, WV, a free vacation to the theme park, with passes for the entire family of six, a weekend hotel stay and even a $100.00 gasoline gift card to offset their travel expenses.
The Thomas family will also receive special VIP seating for the Landau performance of their choice at Busch Gardens and the chance to visit the singer after his performance.
The couple has four children ranging in age from 15 to six months old. The Thomas’ four-year-old daughter Jacee suffers from spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy. She cannot walk or crawl or do anything on her own but loves music and listening to Landau.
“Our family loves listening to Landau sing, especially Jacee. We use Landau’s music for her physical therapy, and she has a ball dancing and watching him perform. We are forever grateful and can’t wait to see Landau at Busch Gardens!” says Mrs. Thomas.
The Thomas family is planning to attend Landau’s show this Saturday, and the whole family will receive free all-day park passes courtesy of Busch Gardens. The $100 gas card is being provided by Marietta-Ohio-based Par Mar Stores, which have several locations in and around the Thomas family’s home in Kanawha County, West Virginia.
“We haven’t had much fun this summer, so this is amazing!” said Ms. Thomas.
