The winner of last year's America's Got Talent, former insurance agent Neal E. Boyd, hits a patriotic note on his debut album My American Dream, out June 23, and PEOPLE has an exclusive first listen of the track "God Bless The USA."

Listen to the song here:

The album, being released by Universal Music's Decca Records label, also features the patriotic tune, "Amazing Grace," as well as a rendition of the song "Nessun Dorma," the latter of which helped Boyd, 33, snag the winning spot. My American Dream is produced with full orchestra accompaniment by Simon Franglen, who has worked with the likes of Celine Dion.

For Boyd, a native of Sikeston, Missouri, the title of the album speaks to his lifelong love of music: "You can achieve anything if you believe in yourself."
