Now America’s Got Talent producers are deciding whether or not to air his episode out of respect to his family.

Bosses had seen his posts on Instagram and asked him to join the competition, expecting him to become a big hit for his big voice and even bigger heart.

The band posted to their Facebook page immediately on hearing the tragic news.

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

But it was his work for others that really won his 50,000 Instagram followers’ hearts.

He qualified as a doctor two years ago and shared pics of himself delivering flu vaccines to kids.

His brother Danni Rogers paid tribute to his younger sibling.

In tears, he said: “I didn’t know what else to do so I’ll just put this out there.

“I want to thank everybody for your kind words and the phone calls and messages. It’s just a testament to how many lives my brother touched.
