Dr. Brandon Rogers, an upcoming contestant on “America’s Got Talent,” died Sunday, TMZ reported. He was 29.

Sources close to “America’s Got Talent“ production told TMZ that Rogers died over the weekend in a car accident. According to TMZ, Rogers was involved in a car crash in Maryland Saturday, June 10, and died the following day in the hospital.

His sister, Christina, released a statement. "Words cannot express the hurt and sadness that come with losing my brother," she wrote on Instagram. "They cannot express the joy and gratitude i feel for having gotten to know and love him. But they can express happiness for knowing that he touched many lives and inspired many."

Brandon, who was called the singing doctor, was discovered by “America’s Got Talent” producers when they found a video of him online singing the classic Boyz II Men song “On Bended Knee.” His performance on the show was scheduled to air in the upcoming weeks.

Boyz II Men also noticed the video and invited Brandon to perform with the band during their concert in Las Vegas this past January.

Boyz II Men shared their condolences with an emotional tribute on Instagram.

“Today our hearts are deeply saddened to learn about the sudden death of Dr. Brandon Rogers,” they wrote, adding, “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.”
