ViralKick – America’s Got Talent honored late contestant Dr. Brandon Rogers on Tuesday’s episode, almost 1 month following the 29-year-old died in a deadly automobile crash in June.
“At the request of the family we’d love to honor his memory by sharing his audition on you,” the NBC series said in a statement before broadcasting Rogers’ look.
Brandon Rogers, The Portsmouth, Virginia, indigenous, who practiced family medicine, sang a gorgeous rendition of Stevie Wonder’s 1995 classic “Ribbon in The Sky” for judges Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum, Mel B and Howie Mandel.
Ahead of his soulful performance that got four yeses, Rogers clarified that the reason he became a physician and set his dreams of singing on grip.
“My inspiration for getting a physician was sort of born from a pretty hard encounter once I was six years old when I arrived home from college one afternoon and discovered my mother laying in a pool of blood,” he remembered. “We hurried back into the hospital, the physicians were like heroes. They saved her life and it made me want to be the physician that I’m today.”
“I feel as if I am in a area where I am really making a difference, and there may be some hard times also,” he added. “My solution to deal with the anxiety has always been music. If I could find a way to join being a physician and medication with singing and music which would be a fantasy come true. ”
PEOPLE heard in June that Rogers was involved in a automobile crash in Maryland and passed out 1 day later.
The aspiring singer had been detected by manufacturers in the reality competition series when they found him Instagram covering Boyz II Men’s “On Bended Knee.” After studying about his departure, Boyz II Men chose for their official Instagram accounts to share their condolences on his death.
Friends and family members who were near Brandon mourned his departure on social websites to share their condolences over his departure and pay tribute to his friend and loved one.
