Neal E. Boyd — the opera singer who won the third season of “America’s Got Talent” — passed away on Sunday. He was 42.
Scott County Coroner Scott Amick tells The Blast that Boyd passed away at his mother’s house in Sikeston, Mo. Boyd died from heart failure and had several medical issues, including heart failure, kidney failure, and issues with his liver.
Amick added that his weight was also a contributing factor.
Boyd has performed over the years for Presidents Barack Obama, George H. W. Bush, Bill Clinton, and George W. Bush.
He released one album following his “AGT” victory, “My American Dream.”
In 2017, Boyd was in a near-fatal car accident after he blacked out while behind the wheel of a car. His mother was in the car at the time of the crash.
