CHARLESTON, W.Va. - "America's Got Talent" winner Landau Murphy headlines a benefit concert beginning at 7 p.m. Saturday at the Charleston Municipal Auditorium.
With an 18-piece big band, Murphy will perform several new songs and favorites from his debut album, "That's Life."
The show will include a special "Murphy Meets Motown" tribute with renditions of classic hits made famous by Stevie Wonder, Sam and Dave, Donny Hathaway and The Temptations, with whom Landau co-headlined during a 2013 tour stop in Detroit.
The concert will benefit the Community Music Association and Junior Achievement of West Virginia. Several other well-known West Virginia artists also are scheduled to perform, including "American Idol" semi-finalist and Point Pleasant native Chase Likens, the Davisson Brothers Band, mandolin virtuoso Johnny Staats and the Delivery Boys, Taylor Made and the Carpenter Ants.
Landau and many of the other artists will be available after the concert to pose for photos and sign autographs.
The West Virginia Music Hall of Fame will bring the Traveling Museum Exhibit to the show. Landau is scheduled to perform at this year's Hall of Fame induction ceremony, where he'll receive a special award.
