Boyd Dies: Former "America’s Got Talent" Winner Was 42

As reported by Variety, Neal Boyd, the opera singer who came in first place on season three of America's Got Talent, has died in Sikeston, Miss. today, at the age of 42.

A local hero in his home state of Missouri, local officials even grew to nickname Neal "the voice of Missouri" due to the multiple public appearance he made in the decade since his "America's Got Talent" win. "He had heart failure, kidney failure and some liver disease". Boyd's death comes a year after he was in a serious vehicle accident with his mom, Esther Boyd, in January 2017. The singer sustained serious injuries and told the Southeast Missourian in February that he was still recovering.
