A contestant from this season of NBC’s “America’s Got Talent,” whose Instagram video earned him an audition for the show and the blessing of Boyz II Men, has died, according to People.

Dr. Brandon Rogers, whose episode was set to air in July, was involved in a car accident in Maryland over the weekend and he died a day later in a hospital, according to an initial report by TMZ. He was 29.

Rogers was discovered by producers when they saw him on Instagram covering Boyz II Men’s “On Bended Knee.” In April, Rogers posted video of himself performing alongside the R&B group. “#tbt my start to 2017. still can’t believe this happened 😩🙌🏽 …. FOREVER grateful @boyziimen,” he captioned the post.

After learning about his passing, Boyz II Men took to their official Instagram account to express their condolences.

“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,” they wrote.

“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,” the post continued.

His brother thanked Brandon’s fans for all the support they’ve gotten since his passing.

  1. No man or woman knoweth the day when the day the death angel will call you from this earth.
    What shall a man prosper to gain the world and lose his or her soul.
    Maybe this day is your last.
    Give your life to Christ and receive eternal life.

  2. I watched America’ Got Talent last on July 11, 2017 and there was a young man on there by the name of Brandon Rogers who sang “A Ribbon In The Sky” and I just cried but after I found out that he died on June 11, 2017 I cried even more. He was so gifted and so talented. My condolences and prayers goes out to his family, friends, and patients. Thank you for allowing us to witness his talent. REST IN HEAVEN Brandon for it’s so hard to say goodbye to yesterday…

    This is so sad…So young. It brings me to tears seeing him in these videos and his family or anyone knowing his life would be cut short. We never know the day nor the hour. 😦
