I Love a Story Like His

I'm so happy that Landau Eugene Murphy, Jr. won "America's Got Talent." Although I didn't watch it very often (every time I checked NBC, it seemed to be on), when I heard him sing, I just couldn't believe how beautiful his voice was. Never off key. Always wonderful. And what a story he has...from where he was, to where he is now. He seems grounded and I hope the winnings and the success won't make him forget his true self. Congratulations to the man with a voice like Sinatra's!

"People often remark that I'm pretty lucky. Luck is only important in so far as getting the chance to sell yourself at the right moment. After that, you've got to have talent and know how to use it."
Frank Sinatra
