Landau Eugene Murphy Jr., the dreadlocked classic crooner vocalist who won season six of NBC Television’s America’s Got Talent, one million dollars, and a Columbia Records contract, kicks off his 2014 Murphy and Motown Christmas Tour in his beloved hometown of Logan, West Virginia on Friday December 5th with a holiday charity performance at the Coalfield Jamboree Theatre. Tickets will be available this Monday, November 10th HERE and will soon be available at the Logan County Chamber of Commerce.
Landau will be performing hits from his debut CD “That’s Life” and his holiday release “Christmas Made For Two” and will preview songs from his upcoming third CD slated for a 2015 release. Also appearing with Landau as his special celebrity guests Leonard, Coleman & Blunt, the former lead vocalists of the Temptations, the Platters, and the Drifters, who have sold over 100 million records worldwide and scored dozens of number one hits.
Landau is also sharing the stage with West Virginia Teen Idol’s Shana Nelson and Seth Bunting.
Every holiday season, Landau is dedicated to helping hometown charities: his tour kick-off show in Logan is no exception. The Salvation Army, Logan High School Prayer Club’s Canned Food Drive, and the Matt Patterson Christmas Toy Drive are all receiving benefits and support from Team Landau in Logan. Ticket holders who donate to these charities can attend a special pre-concert VIP reception with Landau and Leonard, Coleman & Blunt to meet the stars, take photos, get autographs, and spread the holiday cheer.
To help coalfield residents of Logan County whose funds may be a bit tight this Christmas season, Logan County School students from kindergarten to 12th grade will receive the opportunity to receive one free ticket with each adult admission purchase.
Landau will also be serving as the Grand Marshal of the annual City of Logan Christmas Parade starting at 6:30 pm. The Murphy and Motown Christmas Concert will begin after the parade at 8:00 pm.
All of the Murphy and Motown musicians will be available after the show to meet with fans and pose for photos. Landau will be autographing copies of his classic hit Christmas album, Christmas Made For Two.
