Neal Boyd has died at the age of 42, authorities in Missouri said.
The former "America's Got Talent" winner died at his mother's house in Sikeston, Mo., after experiencing heart failure, kidney failure and liver problems, Scott County Coroner Scott Amick told CNN.
He performed as an opera singer on Season 3 of NBC's "America's Got Talent" in 2008, delivering renditions of "Somewhere" from West Side Story and "Nessun Dorma" from the opera Turandot that propelled him to win the competition.
"We are very saddened to hear that one of our AGT family members, Neal Boyd, has passed away," America's Got Talent wrote on its Twitter account.
"Our hearts are with Neal's loved ones during this difficult time."
