Boyd, the gifted opera singer who won "America's Got Talent", died Sunday from heart failure.

The opera singer was best known as the champion of the third series of the USA talent show back in 2008, when he was hailed by judges Sharon Osbourne, Piers Morgan and David Hasselhoff.

Boyd won NBC's "America's Got Talent" and its $1 million prize in 2008.

One year following Boyd's AGT win - where he stunned audiences with performances of "Somewhere" from West Side Story and "Nessun Dorma" - Boyd released an album titled My American Dream, which debuted at number three on the Top Classical Albums chart.

Boyd died at his mother's house in his hometown of Sikeston, Mo.

It's claimed that Neal was at his mother's home in Sikeston, Missouri in the U.S. when he died. His post-Talent career included an album, My American Dream, and performances for multiple US presidents.
