What sad news.
An America’s Got Talent contestant has shockingly passed away, mere weeks before his standout audition was slated to air on the NBC talent competition. Sources dished to TMZ that Dr. Brandon Rogers passed away over the weekend after getting into a car accident.
It’s said the fatal crash occurred in Maryland on Saturday and the 29-year-old was rushed to a local hospital, where he ultimately died the next day. How awful.
Apparently, the doctor was an incredibly talented singer who was discovered by the show’s producers thanks to one Instagram post where Rogers covered Boyz II Men‘s hit, On Bended Knee. This same post gave Brandon the opportunity to perform alongside the band on their tour. What a terrible loss.
While Brandon’s family would love for the late doctor’s audition to air, the production company still remains undecided on what to do about the episode.
