Earlier this year, Dr. Brandon Rogers, a family physician from Portsmouth, Virginia, wowed the audience and judges of America’s Got Talent when he auditioned for the show in March. Rogers earned a standing ovation and a trip to the next round of the NBC reality competition after singing Steve Wonder’s “Ribbon in the Sky.”
Unfortunately, the 29-year-old Rogers died in a car accident last month on June 10th in Maryland. Police said he was a passenger in the vehicle that veered off the road and hit a tree.
On Tuesday, NBC decided to air Rogers’ audition to pay tribute. At the request of his family, the network honored his memory by sharing this fantastic segment, which also features his audition.
