Episode 8 - Overcoming Self-Doubt and Adversity: Interview with America’s Got Talent Winner Landau Eugene Murphy Jr.

Feb 22, 2023

On this episode of the Confidence Within podcast, I'm joined by American jazz singer and America's Got Talent season 6 winner Landau Eugene Murphy Jr. 

Landau's journey to success began with a difficult upbringing in Logan, West Virginia. He experienced homelessness at 19 and had several low points in his life. Nevertheless, Landau had always sung as a way to escape the challenges of his environment, and little did he know, his extraordinary voice would eventually take him places. 

Landau auditioned for America's Got Talent at the age of 35 and blew away the judges and audience with his singing. As a result of this experience, Landau realized he had been denying himself love and appreciation for most of his life due to a lack of self-esteem. 

Since Landau overcame his fear of being picked on and bullied by auditioning for America's Got Talent, he has performed all over the world, raised millions for charity, and is now able to make a living doing what he loves. Landau's advice for others is to be yourself, treat others how you would like to be treated, and pay it forward to those around you. 

Key Highlights:

  • The story of Landau's upbringing, his journey to becoming a professional singer, and how he eventually achieved success doing what he loves
  • The qualities that set Landau apart from the competition on America's Got Talent
  • How Landau's experience on America's Got Talent helped him to build his self-confidence
  • The ways in which Landau is using his success to benefit his community
