“We are deeply saddened by the tragic passing of Dr. Brandon Rogers, who graced the ‘America’s Got Talent’ stage as a contestant,” a spokesperson for the show told US Weekly. “Our thoughts are with his family.”

Dr. Rogers previously gained some notoriety when his cover of Boyz II Men’s hit “On Bended Knee” caught the attention of the band. He was later invited to sing with the band during a January concert.

His family reportedly hopes that “AGT” airs the episode with his audition. A source close to the production said that NBC “will take the family’s guidance regarding how to best respect his memory in relationship to the episode he appears in.”
