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.
