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

Neal Boyd, an opera singer who won NBC's "America's Got Talent" and dabbled in Missouri politics, died June 10 at his mother's house in Sikeston, Mo.

The opera singer passed away Sunday at his mother's home in Sikeston, Missouri, People reports.

The county coroner told TMZ 'no autopsy will be done.

Past America's Got Talent victor Neal E. Boyd has died.

The record shot to number three in the Top Classical Albums Chart, while he also bagged a headline show in Las Vegas.

One year ago, Boyd and his mother were involved in a serious auto accident in Scott County, after running off the right side of the road, striking a tree. They'd been slowly recovering since then. "It was my mom who really kept the family together".

Boyd's twitter biography still has the line, "Boyd for Missouri 2014". "[Recovery is] a very slow progress". I shattered a lot of bones, and shattered my hip, which has left me nearly unable to use that leg for now.

Boyd released two albums following his AGT victory, My American Dream in 2009 and My Christmas Wish in 2013.

Piers said: "You know Neal, as you began to sing, I think the whole audience felt electricity on the stage".

He went on: "Any time you're in a moment of struggle, God has a way of coming in and uplifting you". Just be grateful that you survived.
