INSTITUTE, West Virginia — "America's Got Talent" winner Landau Eugene Murphy Jr. is scheduled to speak at West Virginia State University.

Murphy won NBC's "America's Got Talent" show and a $1 million prize in 2011.

His voice and musical style also won him a record deal and a headlining show in Las Vegas.
