A talented America’s Got Talent contestant, whose gift for singing made him an instant standout, was involved in a tragic automobile accident over the weekend.
Sadly, the stunning performance of AGT contestant Dr. Brandon Rogers, 29, had not even aired yet before he had passed away.
After covering Boyz II Men’s hit song “On Bended Knee” on his Instagram account, producers of the hit talent show reached out to Brandon to ask him to consider auditioning. Boyz II Men also took notice of Brandon and even invited him to sing onstage with them during one of their recent shows.
It was a dream come true for Brandon to be able to sing with his dream idols. He shared the performance on Instagram and wrote: “This past weekend has been nothing short of amazing!! Sharing the stage with my idols…literally a dream come true!! Thank you SO much to 3 of the dopest most insanely talented singers ever @BoyzIIMen!!”
