‘America’s Got Talent’ Contestant Brandon Rogers Dies Before His Performance Airs

Dr. Brandon Rogers, an upcoming contestant on “America’s Got Talent,” died on Sunday, TMZ reports. He was 29.

Sources close to the competition show told the outlet that Brandon died in a car accident over the weekend in Maryland, just weeks before his performance was set to air during a future episode. HuffPost has reached out to a representative of “AGT” and will update this post accordingly.

Brandon’s brother, Danni Rogers, a dancer and choreographer, confirmed the news with a heartbreaking video posted on Instagram.

The video also caught the attention of Boyz II Men, who invited Brandon to perform with them in Las Vegas this past January.

Upon hearing the news of Brandon’s untimely death, Boyz II Men shared a video on Instagram from their performance with him and expressed their condolences with a touching caption.

“Today our hearts are deeply saddened to learn about the sudden death of Dr. Brandon Rogers,” they wrote, adding, “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.”
