The opera singer - who won America's Got Talent in 2008 - has died from heart failure, according to a Monday report from TMZ. He then released his debut album "My American Dream" in 2009, and he performed at the 2012 Republican National Convention in Tampa, Florida.

Boyd captivated audiences with his booming voice and quickly became a fan-favorite while competing on America's Got Talent back in 2008. The opera singer suffered from a health condition related to his heart.

Boyd, who appeared in season 3 of the U.S. talent competition, passed away in Sikeston, Missouri home. His post-Talent career included an album, My American Dream, and performances for multiple US presidents.

Boyd's twitter biography still has the line, "Boyd for Missouri 2014".

Neal E Boyd has died at the age of 42.

One year ago, Boyd and his mother were involved in a serious vehicle accident in Scott County, after running off the right side of the road, striking a tree. "[Recovery is] a very slow progress".

Boyd, who ran as Republican for the Missouri House of Representatives in 2011, also had political plans. "It's been hard, because you can't get up on stage right now, you can't perform for the audiences and you can't really do too much recording or traveling".

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