Opera singer Neal E. Boyd, victor of "America's Got Talent" Season 3, died in Sikeston, Mo., on Sunday.

The pop opera singer's cause of death was heart failure, but there will not be an autopsy to confirm.

Neal rose to fame on America's Got Talent, where he won over the public and judges with his operatic voice.

He also bagged the talent contest's $1 million prize as well as a Las Vegas residency at the time.

He went on to record his first album My American Dream after winning the show.

Boyd was found unresponsive by his mother at her Sikestown, Mo., home and was pronounced dead at 6:26 p.m.

It's claimed that Neal was at his mother's home in Sikeston, Missouri in the USA when he died.

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

One year ago, Boyd and his mother were involved in a serious auto accident in Scott County, after running off the right side of the road, striking a tree.

"It was a very, very, very bad wreck", Boyd told the Southeast Missourian in February.

The AGT victor also dabbled into politics, unsuccessfully running for an open seat in the Missouri House of Representatives in 2011. "When God's given you the time to rebuild your spirit and rebuild your body", the singer said.

Our thoughts are with Boyd's loved ones during this hard time.
