In what comes as quite sad news, America’s Got Talent star, Jane Marczewski, popularly known as Nightbirde has died at the young age of 31 following her prolonged battle with cancer.
Recall that Marczewski rose to public prominence after her trending performance on the show in 2021 as she wowed the judges by performing her own original song about loss and feeling lost.
At the time of her performance on AGT, the then 30-year-old singer was battling her third bout of cancer. She had been fighting cancer since 2017.
She dropped out of the show in August 2022 citing her deteriorating health condition.
Sadly, cancer spread to her lungs, spine, and liver before finally claiming her life on Sunday, February 20, 2022.
Tributes have since been pouring in following the death of the singer who inspired the world with her courage and strength.

In an interview shortly after her viral audition, Nightbirde revealed that she got the inspiration to audition on the show after having the same dream for three straight nights.
In her dreams, she saw a bird by her window singing at night.
“It felt so poetic that these birds were singing as if it were morning, and yet there was no sign of it yet, and that’s what I want to embody,” she said.
She sent in a series of audition tapes and the rest as they say is history.
Following her mind-blowing performance, Nightbirde revealed that doctors had given her a 2% chance of survival
“I have a 2% chance of survival, but 2% is not 0%,” Nightbirde said after her performance. “2% is something, and I wish people knew how amazing it is.”
Following her cancer diagnosis, her husband of five years decided he did not want to remain married to her.
“Soon after that 3 to 6-month diagnosis, my husband informed me he no longer wanted to be married,” she said of the recent separation in July 2021.
Nightbirde was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 2017.
“I was first diagnosed with cancer in 2017, with breast cancer,” she said. “It’s incurable, it may ebb and flow through your life maybe, but at the end of the day, you’ll die.”
The singer had both breasts removed in her battle against the ravaging disease.
Nightbirde who is Christian was during her lifetime quite vocal about her beliefs. In an interview following her overnight popularity, she stated her belief that God had a hand in her journey so far.
“I believe that God can heal in one instant. I also believe that “no good thing does he withhold,” so there was something God was growing in the field that is me, and if God had pulled up all of this hardship too soon, it would have also pulled up all these miracles he did in my spirit.” she said
In another interview, she opened up on death and the lack of fear she feels at the thought of it.
“Yeah, yeah I’m not afraid of it (death), I’m ready to die whenever it’s time for me to die.” She said
