How Dr. Brandon Rogers Died
Sadly, before his AGT episode got to air, Dr. Rogers died on June 11, 2017 from injuries sustained from a single car accident that took place Saturday morning. He was riding in the front passenger seat of a vehicle with two other passengers and the driver, when the car veered off of the road and into a tree. The driver was unharmed and the other two passengers are hospitalized. A 911 call was placed around 4:30 a.m. Saturday morning reporting the accident. At this point, authorities are still investigating what caused the accident, but have reported there were no drugs, nor alcohol involved.
America’s Got Talent producers are now trying to decide if they’ll still keep Dr. Rogers’ episode within the upcoming scheduled programming. Here’s what Rogers recently posted on Instagram about his AGT audition…
His Close Bond With Family
Dr. Rogers was single and didn’t have any children, but he was extremely close with his family- his brother, sister and his parents. He oftentimes posted on Instagram about his appreciation for them…
A few other things that are very prevalent through Rogers’ social media pages are his extreme love for singing and his sheer excitement and gratitude for being granted the many opportunities to share his gifts with the world.
This is beyond sad. That young brotha had his entire life ahead of him. It’s not necessarily meant for any of us to understand why some have to leave this earth much sooner than others, but it’s certainly a reminder of why we need to love on our loved ones everyday and give them their roses while we’re all still here. Dr. Brandon Rogers will be sorely missed and our deepest condolences go out to his Mother, Father, siblings, and the rest of his loved ones at this time.
