Entertainer Releases New Christmas CD and Book - Kicks off Holiday Tour with Stops Across the U.S.A. and China

The next two months are going to be non-stop for Landau Eugene Murphy Jr., the dreadlocked classic crooner vocalist who won season six of NBC Television’s America’s Got Talent. In the next 60 days, Landau has a schedule that would fill up an entire career for most entertainers: a new CD release, a Christmas tour that will take him across the U.S.A. with former vocalists from the Temptations, Platters and Drifters, recording sessions in Hollywood for an upcoming album, a new book release that will see him doing at least two dozen joint CD/book signings, several TV appearances including a live telecast to receive a special Spirit award during the West Virginia Music Hall of Fame induction, a national radio promotion campaign, singing in the televised Macy’s Parade in Pittsburgh, a series of Christmas charity appearances, and a 20 hour flight to China to perform with fellow AGT winner Michael Grimm.

Christmas Made for Two features Landau’s trademark rich vocal textures backed by an all-star lineup of musicians, including several members of Murphy’s touring band. A heartfelt holiday duet featuring Landau and former Temptations lead vocalist Glenn Leonard on a spiritual, understated “Silent Night” rounds out the album. Leonard reprises his lead vocal on the classic from the smash hit “Temptations Christmas” album. Glenn will join Landau on many of his Christmas tour dates.

Landau and award winning co-author Rick Robinson have penned America’s Got Talent Winner Landau Eugene Murphy Jr.: From Washing Cars to Hollywood Star. Published by Headline Books, the memoir depicts Landau’s rise to fame from some not-so fortunate times. The true rags-to-riches story follows a man with big talent, a big heart and an even bigger dream, and how he made that dream come true. The book includes extra features, personal insights from close friends and coworkers, a behind the scenes tour diary, and a scrapbook of never before seen photos.

Landau will be appearing nationwide at multiple Barnes & Noble locations, Adams Hallmark stores, malls, and other venues to sign copies of his new Christmas Made For Two CD and book From Washing Cars to Hollywood Star. Both the CD and book are available now on his website and via Amazon.

To support the release of his CD and book, Landau will be celebrating the holiday season in style with his Classic Christmas Crooners Tour, which kicks off Friday November 1st at the Stonewall Resort in Weston, WV and wraps up in Beckley, WV on December 28th. The tour will include stops in California, Kentucky, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Washington DC, Virginia, West Virginia, and a short overseas leg in China. Select shows in several markets will feature as special guests the former lead vocalists from legendary supergroups The Temptations, The Platters, and The Drifters. Each extraordinary singer will perform their biggest hits, and they’ll all spread holiday cheer singing Christmas classics from Landau’s new “Christmas Made For Two” CD, backed by Landau’s Big Band. Landau’s Classic Christmas Crooners Tour is sponsored by Little General Stores.

A pair of lucky fans will also have the opportunity to join Landau in-studio on November 21st in Hollywood as he
