Former car washer ,Landau Eugene Murphy Jr Wins America's Got Talent ,gets $1 Million


     Former car washer Landau Eugene Murphy Jr has been crowned the winner of this year's America's got Talent.
   The soulful vocalist who once supported himself by washing cars at an auto dealership sang his way to victory on Wednesday on "America's Got Talent."
    "Thank you so much for just believing in me," he said upon hearing his name announced at the end of the NBC summer talent competition.

        "It's been a long, hard journey," he went on, barely holding back tears as the audience roared, "ever since I was a kid. And it's finally paying off."
Murphy, a native of Logan, W.Va., wins $1 million and a Las Vegas headlining contract.
With his rich voice and mild-mannered persona, Murphy had been a favorite of the judges and the audience all season. He beat three other finalists on the season-ending telecast. They included The Silhouettes, a troupe of youngsters from Arvada, Colo., who use shadow dancing to illustrate music. This enormous group, more than three dozen strong ranging in age from 3 to 19 years old, had charmed the audience with its visual effects.
Viewers had cast their votes after Tuesday's performance show, when Murphy sang Frank Sinatra's "My Way."
    On Wednesday's broadcast, Murphy performed "You're All I Need to Get By" in a duet with Patti LaBelle.
    He will headline in Las Vegas at Caesars Palace next month, with the other three finalists also on the bill.
