Singer Jane Marczewski (31), who went by the stage name Nightbirde, lost her battle with breast cancer on Sunday, February 20, 2022.
The former Liberty University student became a household name after she warmed the hearts of America’s Got Talent (AGT) fans last June with her powerful performance and testimony.
Marczewski was a three-time cancer survivor, and during her AGT performance last year, she shared that her cancer had returned. Before singing her original song titled “It’s Okay,” she told AGT judge Simon Cowell that she wasn’t in great health, saying, “Last time I checked, I had some cancer in my lungs, and in my spine, and in my liver.”
The matter-of-fact Cowell was left nearly speechless and could only respond with a somber, “Wow.”
