Landau Eugene Murphy Jr. is helping Southern West Virginia Community and Technical College celebrate its fiftieth anniversary with a free public concert on the Logan campus this Saturday.
The concert will be held in the Savas-Kostas Performing Arts Center starting at 7 p.m. Southern is asking for at least two cans of food from each person attending for the college’s student food pantry.
The Southern concert coincides with Landau’s tenth anniversary win on NBC’s “America’s Got Talent”. In 2011, Landau got his big break when he won “America’s Got Talent”, receiving a million-dollar grand prize, a Las Vegas show, and a recording contract with Columbia Records. Landau’s debut CD shot to number one.
Murphy will be performing every song from his run of wins on “America’s Got Talent” run. He will also be throwing in some surprises.
Southern President Dr. Pamela L. Alderman said “We are thrilled to present Landau on our stage at the Savas Kostas Performing Arts Center. He has been an ambassador for the local area and a strong advocate for education. We are more than excited that he will be part of our 50th Anniversary year-long celebration.”
The concert is being sponsored by Fountain Place Cinemas, Logan Regional Medical Center, and The City of Logan.
Additional sponsors include Robert Noone Legal Services, Missy Birchfield, your local State Farm Insurance agent, Keefer’s Powersports, and Mountain State Harley-Davidson.
