AGT winner Murphy to perform holiday concerts

LOGAN, W.Va. (AP) — “America’s Got Talent” winner Landau Eugene Murphy Jr. is performing a series of holiday concerts online.

Landau’s Virtual Home for the Holidays Tour includes eight shows scheduled from Dec. 16 through 23. Tickets cost $20.

Among the songs scheduled to be performed by the native of Logan, West Virginia, include selections from his album “Christmas Made For Two,” according to a news release. Viewers will be able to request songs and interact with Murphy.

“It might be unsafe for you to come to a theater to see me, so I’m going to come see you this Christmas, online,” Murphy said. “We all need to keep that human connection to one another, especially during the holiday season.”

In 2011, Murphy’s smooth renditions of Frank Sinatra hits helped earn him $1 million, his own Las Vegas show and a recording contract when he won the NBC talent show.
