Dr. Brandon Rogers was a man of many talents.
Not only was he a doctor of osteopathic medicine, but he was also an incredible singer. According to TMZ, Rogers’s indescribable talent was discovered back in 2016, when a video of him singing Boyz II Men’s “On Bended Knee” went viral:
The video not only attracted the attention of “America’s Got Talent” producers, but also Boyz II Men themselves.
The R&B group even invited him to perform with them on stage back in January:
Rogers wrote of the experience:
This past weekend has been nothing short of amazing!! Sharing the stage with my idols…literally a dream come true!! Thank you SO much to 3 of the dopest most insanely talented singers ever.
Sadly, on June 10, Rogers was involved in a fatal single-car accident.
According to TMZ, Maryland State troopers responded to a call that a car had veered off the road and crashed into a tree around 4:30 a.m. Rogers, who was sitting in the front passenger seat, was one of three people in the car at the time of the accident.
The driver allegedly walked away from the accident uninjured. The second passenger was taken to a local hospital and is expected to survive.
Rogers succumbed to his injuries on June 11.
The members of Boyz II Men took to Instagram to offer their condolences to Rogers’ family:
Today our hearts are deeply saddened to learn about the sudden death of Dr. Brandon Rogers. A few months 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. 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.
As TMZ reports, Rogers’s “America’s Got Talent” episode was scheduled to premiere sometime in July. However, producers of the show remain unsure as to whether they will air the episode following the 29-year-old’s unexpected death.
Rogers’ family told TMZ that they hope NBC does still air the episode as was expected.
Both of Rogers’s siblings took to social media after learning the news of their beloved brother’s passing. His sister, Christian, wrote on Instagram:

But the can express happiness for knowing that he touched many lives and inspired many. Thank you all for your prayers and condolences?? Cherish your loved ones and hold them close the way Brandon did. Life is short and Tomorrow is not promised
And Rogers’s brother, Danni, followed suit by posting a video:
He called Rogers his “best friend.”
According to the Maryland police, Rogers’s death is still under investigation. They do not suspect that alcohol and drugs were a factor in what caused the fatal accident.
