Loved ones gathered in person and online last Friday to honor Jane Marczewski, the 31-year-old Christian singer who died Feb. 19. Marczewski, who went by the stage name Nightbirde, gained fame after appearing on America’s Got Talent (AGT) last summer and talking about her cancer prognosis.
Marczewski was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2017, and it later spread to her lungs, liver, and spine. She inspired AGT viewers with her faith and optimism, as well as her voice. Although she received the “Golden Buzzer” award for her performance, she soon withdrew from the TV competition to focus on her health.
