WV's Landau Eugene Murphy Jr. Wins America's Got Talent

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 iLuminati, 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.
