The tragic death of one the most promising talents of America’s Got Talent season 12 has shocked the world.
Shock And Awe
Brandon Rogers put his audience in a state of awe, but was tragically involved in a car accident in Maryland on Saturday, ET reported that he was taken to the hospital, where he passed away aged 29, on Sunday.
“It’s a very difficult time. What we want people to remember most is his love of God and how much he touched others.” a family member told ET. “His ability to sing was a gift. He was funny and genuine and everyone loved him. What he did was inspire others because of his love for God.”
Rogers, who was riding shotgun in a 2016 black Mercedes-Benz, along with two of his friends, went off the road and crashed into a tree, ET reported.
According to Maryland State Police, the two passengers in the car were transported by ambulance to a nearby hospital, while the driver did not sustain any injuries. Rogers submitted to his injuries during his treatment at the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Medical Center. Investigations are being carried out. However, the police do not believe intoxication was the reason.
The prospect of airing his cover of Boyz II Men’s On Bended Knee is still a mystery.
Boyz II Men learnt of the horrible news, so they took to Instagram on Sunday to post a video of them singing I’ll Make Love to You with Rogers.
“Today our hearts are deeply saddened to learn about the sudden death of Dr Brandon Rogers.” the band wrote. “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.” the message continues. “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.”
