Landau Eugene Murphy Jr. has gone from car wash rags to riches.
Murphy, a Logan County car washer, was chosen by American TV viewers as this year’s champion of “America’s Got Talent”, as he won the top prize of $1 million and a show at Las Vegas’ Caesar’s Palace with his velvet renditions of Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin classic songs.
Murphy appeared shocked as show host Nick Cannon announced he had won the competition over performance artists Silhouettes, an inspirational team of children who dance behind a screen that shows their silhouettes forming different objects and scenes.
