NEW YORK (AP) - Soulful vocalist Landau Eugene Murphy Jr. has
sung his way to victory on "America's Got Talent."
The mellow singer from Logan, W.Va., took the crown on
Wednesday, scoring $1 million and a Las Vegas headlining contract.
He beat three other finalists on the season-ending broadcast of the
NBC talent competition.
The other finalists were: teenage rock band PopLyfe from
Oakland, Calif.; Team iLuminate (EYE'-loo-min-ayt), whose dancing
performers equip themselves with wearable wireless lighting
systems; and The Silhouettes, a troupe of youngsters from Arvada,
Colo., who use shadow dancing to illustrate songs.
Murphy will headline at Caesars Palace next month, with the
other three finalists also on the bill.
