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

Neal E. Boyd

Neal Boyd, an opera singer who won NBC's "America's Got Talent" and dabbled in Missouri politics, has died. News that they received Boyd's body and he has been cremated.

TMZ is reporting that the cause of death is heart failure, and Neal had a known heart condition at the time of his death. He was in heart failure, kidney failure, and had liver disease. He recorded one album, "My American Dream", after the victory.

According to TMZ, in early 2017 Boyd blacked out while driving and got into an accident that left him and his mother badly injured.

Boyd won the show in 2008, wowing judges and audience members with his operatic voice. Boyd's high-profile win was so iconic for his hometown that it constituted Sikeston to rebrand October 2008 as "Neal E. Boyd month". The singer was reportedly at his mother's home at the time.

Boyd, who ran as Republican for the Missouri House of Representatives in 2011, also had political plans.

"It was a very, very, very bad wreck", Boyd told the Southeast Missourian in February.

"You never know what's going to happen next".
