A promising young contestant on this season of "America's Got Talent" tragically died before his episode even aired.
Dr. Brandon Rogers died over the weekend following a car accident in Maryland. He was 29.
Rogers' episode of "AGT" was scheduled to air in July, and his family still wants that to happen, but sources told TMZ that the show hasn't yet decided whether to air it or not.
Rogers was tapped by producers to audition for the show after they saw an Instagram post of him singing a cover of the Boyz II Men song "On Bended Knee." He was so good that the band invited him to join them on stage in Las Vegas in January. At the time, Rogers wrote on Instagram:
"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 !!"
Boyz II Men sent their condolences to his friends and family:
Today our hearts are deeply saddened to learn about the sudden death of Dr. Brandon Rogers. A few moths 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 missed. May God Bless, keep and comfort your family in this difficult time.
