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

We're told he had a known a health condition related to his heart. "He had heart failure, kidney failure and some liver disease".

Neal E Boyd has died at the age of 42.

The opera singer was best known as the champion of the third series of the United States talent show back in 2008, when he was hailed by judges Sharon Osbourne, Piers Morgan and David Hasselhoff. "It was my mom who really kept the family together".

The former insurance salesman-turned-opera singer won the 2008 competition, and the $1 million prize, after sharing with audiences - and judges David Hasselhoff, Piers Morgan and Sharon Osbourne (Jerry Springer was host) - the story of his impoverished upbringing, and love of singing.

Just a year before his passing, Boyd and his mother, Esther, were in a major auto accident after he blacked out behind the wheel.

The singer and his mother were reportedly badly injured. "[Recovery is] a very slow progress".

The opera singer won the competitive series in 2008 and released his first album, My American Dream, the following year.

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

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

He was also very involved in politics and campaigned for a Missouri District 149 House Seat in 2014. Just be grateful that you survived.
