Neal Boyd, an opera singer, winner of NBC's "America's Got Talent" and dabbler in Missouri politics, has died at age 42.

Scott County Coroner Scott Amick says Boyd died around 6 p.m. Sunday at his mother's house in Sikeston, The Associated Press reported. 

Amick says Boyd had a number of medical problems, including heart failure, kidney failure and liver problems. He was seriously injured in a car crash in 2017.
