America’s Got Talent has aired the audition of Brandon Rogers a month after he was killed in a car accident on June 11.
His audition was yet to air on NBC in America around the time of his death, but with the blessing of Brandon’s family it was shown during Tuesday night’s episode.
29-year-old Brandon, found fame last year when his cover of Boyz II Men track On Bended Knee went viral and even caught the attention of the group.
Brandon, a doctor in family medicine, sang Ribbon In The Sky by Stevie Wonder for judges Simon Cowell, Mel B, Heidi Klum and Howie Mandel, and he was a storming success.
“Your vocal is stunning, stunning,” said judge Simon Cowell. “You are one of the best singers we’ve had in the competition so far — I’ve got to tell you.”
All four judges voted for Rogers to move to the next round.
The show paid tribute to Brandon on Tuesday with a statement before his audition was shown.
It said: ‘On June 11th one of our contestants, Brandon Rogers, tragically passed away in a car accident. At the request of his family we would like to honour his memory by sharing his audition with you.’
