Dr. Brandon Rogers, 29, — an America’s Got Talent contestant —reportedly died on Sunday, June 11, after being involved in a car crash, according to TMZ. Sources close to production informed the site of Rogers’ passing, and said that his episode was set to air in just a few weeks [sometime in July 2017]. There has reportedly been no decision made as to whether the episode will air or not.
The car crash reportedly occurred in Maryland on Saturday, June 10, where Rogers was taken to a hospital and later died, as reported by TMZ. Rogers’ family told the site that they would love for his AGT episode to air.

The 29-year-old has two siblings, a sister, Christian Rogers, and a brother, Danni Rogers, a dancer. Danni and Christian actually took to Instagram on June 13 to speak out about their brother’s death. “I want to thank everybody for your kind words… it’s just a testament to how many lives my brother actually touched,” Danni said in an emotionally tearful video. “I lost my best friend yesterday, but to see all the lives he’s touched brings joy to my heart,” he said in the caption of the video.

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.
