  • Neal Boyd Dead – 'America's Got Talent' Winner Dies at 42

Boyd, the opera singer who won Season 3 of NBC's summer competition series America's Got Talent in 2008, died Sunday at his home in Sikeston, Mo.

The pop opera singer's cause of death was heart failure, but there will not be an autopsy to confirm.

Neal starred on America's Got Talent in 2008, going on to scoop first place on the talent show after winning the audience over.

The singer released his debut album My American Dream in 2009, followed by My Christmas Wish in 2013. "So sad. Rest peacefully, Neal E. Boyd". His post-Talent career included an album, My American Dream, and performances for multiple USA presidents.

Boyd also ran unsuccessfully as a Republican for a south-east Missouri seat in the USA house of representatives seat, losing in the general election in 2012 and in the primary in 2014.

Boyd's death comes a year after he was in a serious auto accident with his mom, Esther Boyd, in January 2017.

Speaking about the incident at the time, he told the Southeast Missourian: "It was a very, very, very bad wreck ...it's a very slow progress".

He went on: "Any time you're in a moment of struggle, God has a way of coming in and uplifting you".

Piers said: "You know Neal, as you began to sing, I think the whole audience felt electricity on the stage". "Our hearts are with Neal's loved ones during this hard time".
