On Tuesday, “America’s Got Talent” paid tribute to Dr. Brandon Rogers by airing his audition following his tragic death after a car accident in June.

Rogers was practicing family medicine and had a knack for singing on the side. He auditioned with a cover of Stevie Wonder’s “Ribbon In The Sky” for the judges who were wowed and he earned four yeses.

“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,” Rogers explained about not pursuing his singing career.

When they went to the hospital, Rogers was so taken by the work of the doctors and that’s what had inspired him. The way he coped with the difficulties of his job had been through music and that showed in his audition.

“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 revealed.

The show’s producers discovered Rogers on Instagram when they came across his cover of Boyz II Men’s “On Bended Knee”.

When Boyz II Men found out that Rogers had died, the band took to Instagram to remember him with a touching video of him performing with the band:
