Landau Murphy Jr Net Worth 2020 – American jazz singer Landau Eugene Murphy Jr. rose to fame after winning the sixth season of America’s Got Talent in 2011. Originally from West Virginia, he spent his youth in Detroit, Michigan following his parents’ divorce at the age of eight.
Born on August 11, 1974 in West Virginia, Landau Eugene Murphy spent the first few years of his childhood in Logan County, before moving to Detroit, Michigan at the age of eight following his parents divorce.
Having been exposed to music as a young boy, he developed an appreciation for artists such as Dean Martin and Sinatra while still in elementary school; in fact, it wasn’t uncommon for him to sing some of their tunes on the playground with his friends.
Even as a teen, music continued to play a large part in his life- as he had stated in an interview, it had “become a part of [his] everyday thing”.
Despite his passion for singing, he did not dream about becoming a music artist as a young boy; instead, he had pondered the idea of one day becoming a professional basketball player.
When he was seventeen years old, Murphy dropped out of high school in order to take care of his four siblings. Eventually moving back to his hometown in West Virginia, he started to work at a local restaurant, where he reconnected with a childhood friend who would later become his wife in 2005.
Despite his best efforts however, his financial situation soon dipped; by the time he was nineteen, he was living out of his vehicle, having been unable to afford rent.
As he did however, Murphy continued to work at a local car wash. In 2010, the Virginia-native decided to try his luck at the popular talent competition series, America’s Got Talent.
Packing his last pair of pants and jacket, he travelled to New York City, alongside his wife, to attend the auditions- where he had to stand outside of a convention centre for over 12 hours.
