A touching tribute!
A local doctor and music lover, Brandon Rogers, who auditioned for the America's Got Talent has been honored by America's Got Talent after he was killed in a car accident at the tender age of 29.
As per reports, a friend of Rogers, who was driving the car dozed off, and he veered the car off the road into a tree, causing Rogers' death.
The driver told the officers that he had just finished a long shift at work. As per reports, Brandon was in the front passenger seat, and one friend drove the car while the other was in the back seat of the car.
The other two people escaped narrowly, but Brandon could not escape his fate. Following the accident, unfortunately, he died of his injuries on June 11, 2017.
As per sources on the site, no drugs or alcohol were involved in the accident.
But now that Brandon is no more, America's Got Talent has aired his audition video weeks after his tragic demise.
The NBC reality show released a statement before the video was aired and the statement read,
“At the request of his family we would like to honor his memory by sharing his audition with you,”

The local doctor from Portsmouth, Virginia, who was practicing family medicals sang Stevie Wonder’s classic from 1995 “Ribbon In The Sky” in front of the judges Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum, Howie Mandel and Mel B.
After getting four yeses, Roger revealed as to why he had to put his dreams of being a singer on hold to become a doctor.
“My inspiration for becoming a doctor was kind of born out of a pretty tough experience when I was six years old when I came home from school one day and found my mom laying in a pool of blood,”
“We rushed her to the hospital, the doctors were like heroes. They saved her life and it made me want to be the doctor that I am today.”
Moreover, he added,
“I feel like I’m in a field where I’m actually making a difference, and there can be some tough days too,”
“My way to cope with the stress has always been music. If I could find a way to combine being a doctor and medicine with music and singing that would be a dream come true.'
He is no more with his family and close ones, and they have flooded tributes to late Rogers over on social media and his family thanked for the condolences.

Brandon’s sister, Christian also shared an emotional and touching tribute to her brother.
