(CelebrityAccess) — Jane Marczewski, a singer better known by Nightbirde who made a name for herself on the television talent show “America’s Got Talent” has died after a battle with cancer. She was 31.
A statement released by her family on Monday said: “It is with the deepest heartache that we confirm that after a four year battle with cancer, Jane Marczewski, known to many of you as Nightbirde, passed away on February 19th, 2022.”
A native of Ohio, Marczewski released her first EP in 2012 and followed it up with a second self-written and crowdfunded EP in 2013.
She relocated to Nashville to pursue a career in music but was sidelined by a cancer diagnosis in 2017.
After going into remission in 2018, she recorded new music and opened shows for Tori Kelly and appeared on AGT, winning a “Golden Buzzer” award for her performance of her self-written song “It’s OK” which went on to top the iTunes chart.
However, she was forced to withdraw from the show after her cancer returned.
