I’m glad that Landau Eugene Murphy Jr. won the “America’s Got Talent” Season Finale with his very enjoyable rendition of Frank Sinatra’s “My Way”.
He is such a smooth, talented singer, with a style that makes it seem so effortless.
I was also struck by something he said in one of the clips before his performance. “Don’t stereotype me…because I’ll come outside the box for something else,” he said with a smile.
Well, I really dislike people stereotyping others. And there are people in this world who have low expectations of others, and behave according, based on how an individual looks.
Landau has shown that one can rise above the perceptions of others, and excel at something you love.
“A Star is Born” – many people on the Net are using this phrase to describe his journey in this competition. From working at the car wash to his success, Landau exemplifies the American story and spirit of second chances and plugging at your dream.
Landau, we look forward to more of your music.
