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

The opera singer - who won America's Got Talent in 2008 - has died from heart failure, according to a Monday report from TMZ.

He went on to win Season 3, earning a $1 million prize and a headlining act in Las Vegas.

American pop opera singer Neal E. Boyd, who performed at the Tampa Bay Times Forum in Tampa, Florida, on August 28, 2012 during the Republican National Convention, died on Sunday.

Scott County Coroner Scott Amick told the Associated Press that Boyd died of heart and kidney failure and liver disease related to his weight.

Neal Evans Boyd was born November 18, 1975, and grew up in Sikeston.


After fame hit, he recorded the album, My American Dream.

According to TMZ, just a year ago Neal was involved in a serious accident after he "blacked out" while driving. "[Recovery is] a very slow progress".

Boyd's twitter biography still has the line, "Boyd for Missouri 2014".

In 2011, the singer ran as Republican for the Missouri House of Representatives.

Piers said: "You know Neal, as you began to sing, I think the whole audience felt electricity on the stage. It's been hard, because you can't get up on stage right now, you can't perform for the audiences and you can't really do too much recording or traveling". "It was really about the tone of politics at the time, and I don't see any opportunities right now to get involved again, but I would love to", Boyd shared.
