Landau Eugene Murphy Jr. Earns His High School Equivalency Diploma
On May 17, Landau shared that he graduated from the Southern West Virginia Community and Technical College’s Adult Education Association Inc. program. Within the photos, the singers certificate shares that he passed the high school equivalency test.
Along with Landau’s photos, he wrote a heartfelt caption thanking his friends and family for supporting him through the process. He also thanked individual teachers and promoted their program.
During the 2020 coronavirus pandemic lockdown, the jazz singer began attending online school. The lack of performances gave him the time to earn his high school equivalency diploma. Landau reportedly dropped out of high school in eleventh grade.
“When I first won America’s Got Talent, I wanted to do it, but my schedule was so busy I couldn’t fit it in,” he said. “This pandemic has been a blessing in disguise for me because it gave me the downtime to focus and get it taken care of.
Even though Landau already held an honorary doctorate of music from the University of Charleston, he chose to return to school, noting that dropping out was a “haunting mistake.”
This singer stole America’s heart when he shared the story of fluctuating from one low-wage job to another. He totally turned his life around after winning AGT‘s million-dollar grand prize, a Las Vegas show, and a recording contract with Columbia Records. Due to his success, he continually was busy going from show to show. The singer explained that the lack of performances in 2020 inspired him to return to school.
