Season 12’s “America’s Got Talent” contestant Dr. Brandon Rogers was killed in a car accident on Saturday.
Rogers AGT was scheduled to air on NBC next month, but no word yet from producers on whether the episode will still be shown.
He became famous after posting a video on Instagram of himself performing a cover of Boyz II Men’s “On Bended Knee,” which also caught the attention of AGT producers, and also eventually caught the attention of the R&B group.
Boys II Men invited Rogers to perform with them at the Mirage Hotel in Las Vegas this past January.
They released a statement on their Facebook page on Sunday after learning of Rogers’ passing.
“Today our hearts are deeply saddened to learn about the sudden death of Dr. Brandon Rogers in a car accident. A few [months] back we brought this young man out to the Mirage Hotel in Las Vegas to perform with us. He was great all 3 nights! Just a genuinely nice person and a really good singer! Gone too young and gone too soon. It hurts to know that the world will never have a chance to witness what his impact on the world could have been as a Doctor and even on the music world. A great spirit and a great voice. Even for the little time we knew you you will be sorely miss. May God Bless, keep and comfort your family in this difficult time.”
The world has lost another talented soul way too soon. Sing with the angels✨
