The runaway winner of the “America’s Got Talent” competition and West Virginia native, Landau Eugene Murphy, Jr. will headline at Mountaineer Casino, Racetrack and Resort on Friday, December 23 at 8pm.

Many have compared Landau’s smooth vocals and phrasing to that of Frank Sinatra, a singer he’s always admired. Landau, from Logan, W.V., won the coveted America’s Got Talent competition in September 2011. As part of the AGT prize, Landau realized a lifelong dream and headlined a show in Las Vegas. His debut CD “That’s Life” is being released November 21st on Syco/Columbia Records.
This sudden rise to fame has been in keeping with Landau’s roller-coaster ride of a life. As a young man, he was once reduced to sleeping in his car; he worked at a car wash during the months leading up to his TV performances—and was down to his last pair of pants and jacket when he arrived to sing in the AGT auditions at Radio City Music Hall.
