Benefit Celebration to feature NBC’s America’s Got Talent winner

Season six winner of NBC’s America’s Got Talent Landau Eugene Murphy Jr.
Credit: Allen Media Strategies
DuBOIS – Season six winner of NBC’s “America’s Got Talent” Landau Eugene Murphy Jr. will headline this year’s Annual Penn State DuBois Benefit Celebration. Backed by a full big band, Landau will perform favorites from Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, and other timeless classics.
Tickets go on sale Monday, July 1, for this unique event, slated to begin at 6:00 p.m., October 12, at the DuBois Country Club.

When Landau showed up to audition for NBC TV’s America’s Got Talent in 2010, he was singing to pass the time while grinding out a living washing cars in his hometown of Logan, WV (population 3,000) and the only “nice” clothes he owned were the ones on his back: a pair of jeans, a modest button down striped shirt and jacket.

Fortunately, you don’t need a slick wardrobe to win America’s heart. You need talent and personality, and Landau has a great deal of both. Wowing the judges with his back story of homelessness and determination to succeed for his family, coupled with interpretations of classics from Cole Porter, Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra and others, Landau walked away with the million dollar grand prize in front of 14 million weekly viewers. According to show insiders, when all was said and done, Landau had won America’s Got Talent by the biggest vote total in the show’s history.

Landau’s third album, which was released in December 2016, includes his signature take on popular Great American Songbook standards, updated versions of classic R&B tracks with what Landau calls a “Big Band twist,” and Landau’s first ever original compositions co-written with some of the music industry’s biggest Grammy-winning songwriters. Tracks were recorded at the famed Capitol Records Studio “B,” home to Frank Sinatra, Judy Garland, Nat “King” Cole, Dean Martin and many more legendary vocalists. His latest album “Landau Live in Las Vegas” was recorded this summer at the legendary Caesar’s Palace and is slated for release in November 2019.

Landau also has a strong tie to Pennsylvania; he has completed his first movie role in the inspirational film “Choices”, which was set in the Keystone State. Landau has participated in multiple movie screenings and Q&A sessions across PA and the Mid Atlantic to help bring the film's message of making the right choices to moviegoers.

During the evening’s program, three individuals will also be honored for their accomplishments, as well as their dedication to Penn State DuBois with the annual Alumni Society Awards. The Alumni Society will present awards to Richard Ogden, recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award; Anita McDonald, recipient of the Distinguished Ambassador Award; and Craig Hicks, recipient of the Outstanding Alumni Award.

A reception, dinner, drinks, Alumni Awards presentation, and the Landau Eugene Murphy Jr. performance are all included in the ticket price of $100 for the evening, with $50 from each ticket sale being donated directly to Penn State DuBois scholarships funds. Last year’s event raised $10,000 to help cover the cost of higher education for Penn State DuBois students.

Potter County Conservation District Meeting Notice


What Was I Thinking?
Pastor B.J. Knefley

Some times I've had the illusion that people think the same way as I do. What was I thinking? This past week has been one of those weeks that there was more drama going on around me than could be found on TV.

I don't really understand drama or why people seem to live in it all the time, but it's real. Personally I try to avoid it like the plague. If I know it's coming I try to get as far away from it as possible. One person described drama as, "a way of relating to the world in which a person consistently overreacts to or greatly exaggerates the importance of benign events."

One of the reasons that I believe that people resort to drama is because they don't have a life. They don't have a grasp of life having a bigger purpose or plan other than what's going on in the moment. Hence when events happen, they can't see how it might work within the context of a larger picture. Consequently, they view it as being personal and affecting them in every way imaginable. Using it as an opportunity to draw attention to themselves as they crawl up on their high horse and proceed to pull everyone else down to their level.

I've jokingly stated that's its like being around someone with a split personality that one minute can be smiling and docile and then the next become a raging bull. Like the schizophrenic person, they see things that aren't there, interpret situations that never existed, and generally act in a manner that makes the rest of us scratch our heads.

I do believe that there is a cure; it's called "Get a life!” In other words, start to understand that life doesn't revolve around you. You weren't placed on this earth to be the center of it, only a part of it. God already is the center. When you start to see yourself within the scope of eternity, your little drama may not seem all that important.

Think about it.
