Potomac State Slates Concert

September 12th, 2016 by WCBC Radio Eugene Murphy Jr. and guest star Glenn Leonard, former lead vocalist for The Temptations, will perform this Thursday at the Church-McKee Arts Center of Potomac State College in Keyser, West Virginia for the 2015-2016 season of Highland Arts Unlimited programs and enjoy the magic of Motown.

2016 is the biggest year yet for West Virginia native Landau Eugene Murphy Jr., and season 6 winner of America’s Got Talent. Landau began his summer participating in the Rebuild West Virginia flood benefit, raising money (over half a million dollars) and awareness for the flood victims of West Virginia. Landau hit the iTunes Top 10 Jazz chart this June with his new song “Come Home to West Virginia.” After his PBS special at The Grove in Hollywood, Landau went on to perform with the legendary Boston Pops Symphony Orchestra. Due to popular demand he is happily returning to West Virginia to perform for his home state fans.

After a summer tour that included stops in Boston, Hartford, Seattle, Phoenix, Reno, Miami, Hollywood, Washington D.C., Landau is especially excited to come home. Joining Landau will be his good friend and former lead vocalist of the Motown legends The Temptations, Glenn Leonard. Leonard performed on 10 albums with The Temptations, singing lead on “I’m on Fire,” “Go for It,” “The Best of Both Worlds,” “Open Their Eyes,” “Ever Ready Love,” and the popular hit “Silent Night.” Glenn was proudly inducted into the R&B Hall of Fame in 2013. Landau loves performing with Glenn and said, “it’s always an honor and a treat for me to sing alongside a former Temptation.” Meets Motown is funded in part by membership contributions and grants from the West Virginia Commission on the Arts of the West Virginia Division of Culture and History, the National Endowment for the Arts, Mid-Atlantic Arts Foundation, the Pew Charitable Trusts and Potomac State College, the Mineral County Board of Education and many more corporate sponsors.
