Landau Eugene Murphy Jr. says
Landau Eugene Murphy Jr. truly has a rags-to-riches story. At the time he auditioned for America’s Got Talent, he was washing cars for a living in his hometown of Logan, West Virginia. The only nice clothes he owned were the ones on his back: a pair of jeans, a modest button-down shirt, and a jacket.

Fortunately, you don’t need a slick wardrobe to win America’s heart; you need talent and personality, and Murphy has a great deal of both. Wowing the judges with his story of homelessness and determination—not to mention his stellar interpretations of classics from Cole Porter, Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, and others—Murphy walked away with the million dollar grand prize in front of 14 million viewers.

According to show insiders, Murphy won America’s Got Talent by the biggest vote total in the first six seasons of the show.
