Everywhere I’ve gone in the past two years, people kept asking me if I’d do a Christmas album. I love holiday music, and I’m happy to give folks what they want.

To round off the weekend, you can catch Landau and his band and their "Classic Christmas Tour" at Jergel’s Rhythm Grille just north of Pittsburgh in Warrendale, PA Sunday evening, December 1st at 7:00 PM. Fans can buy their tickets now at http://www.jergels.com. Landau will be performing holiday classics, tracks from his Columbia Records debut CD "That's Life" and Motown/R&B hits for a non-stop hit packed evening of entertainment. Landau’s "Classic Christmas Tour" is sponsored by Little General Stores.
The holiday whirlwind began with the recent release of "Christmas Made For Two", with a portion of all CD sales benefiting The Children’s Home Society in Murphy’s home state of West Virginia, a charity that Landau has supported for more than a decade. Featuring fresh, jazzy spins on Christmas classics, the album is guaranteed to bring holiday cheer and find its place beneath many a Christmas tree this season. "Everywhere I’ve gone in the past two years, people kept asking me if I’d do a Christmas album. I love holiday music, and I’m happy to give folks what they want," says the soft-spoken crooner of his second album.
The short version of Landau’s life story is well known to the 14 million viewers who watched his climb to the top on NBC TV’s America’s Got Talent; formerly homeless, the smiling car washer who won a million dollars, a recording contract and a Las Vegas headlining stint at Caesars Palace. This Christmas, the entire story is available to readers everywhere. Landau and award winning co-author Rick Robinson have penned America’s Got Talent Winner Landau Eugene Murphy Jr.: From Washing Cars to Hollywood Star. Published by Headline Books, the memoir depicts Landau’s rise to fame from some not-so fortunate times. The true rags-to-riches story follows a man with big talent, a big heart and an even bigger dream, and how he made that dream come true. The book includes extra features, personal insights from close friends and coworkers, a behind the scenes tour diary, and a scrapbook of never before seen photos.
Landau will be appearing nationwide at multiple Barnes & Noble locations (including South Hills Village this Saturday from 3pm-5pm), Hallmark stores, malls, and other venues to sign copies of his brand new CD Christmas Made For Two and his recently released book: From Washing Cars to Hollywood Star. Both the CD and book are available now via Amazon and through Landau’s website, http://www.landaumurphyjr.com, where you can get exclusive autographed copies or purchase a special package deal for both items. Christmas Made For Two is available on iTunes and many other exclusive music outlets including Spotify, Amazon MP3, iHeartRadio, and more.
In China on December 6th and 7th, Landau will perform at Shanghai’s Mercedes Benz Arena alongside fellow America’s Got Talent winner Michael Grimm and judge local talent for the chance to open the show. A major highlight of the show is sure to be when a finalist from China’s Got Talent will join Landau on stage to sing a duet... in English, hopefully.
