Jane Nightbirde dies after long battle with cancer

As previously reported by Legit.ng, Jane Marczewski alias Nightbirde, who earned many followers after being a contestant on America's Got Talent, died after a battle with cancer.

The singer caught the attention of many after delivering a stunning audition in 2021 on America's Got Talent.

Nightbirde had impressed judge Simon Cowell with her positivity and resolve.

Cowell then awarded Marczewski a coveted "golden buzzer," which advanced her to the next round of the competition but she ultimately hoped out due to health-related issues.

She was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 2017, she was given just a 2% chance of survival in 2019. The young lady beat the odds and was cancer-free until the disease returned for the third and final time in 2021.
