Jane Marczewski, known professionally as Nightbirde died on Saturday at the age of 31. Jane Marczewski was an “America’s Got Talent” contestant; she became a fan favorite after her breakout performance on the most recent season of “America’s Got Talent”. She fought cancer for four years. She won a Golden buzzer at her audition on AGT in 2021 after releasing two EPs and two singles but was unable to compete in the quarterfinals owing to a failing health condition due to cancer. 

About Nightbirde

Marczewski was born on December 29, 1990, in Warsaw, Poland. She was born in Zanesville, Ohio. She has three siblings and began songwriting at the age of six when she assisted her mother in finishing a song’s lyrics. She received her bachelor’s degree in communications from Liberty University. 

Reason for Nightbirde Death

Nightbirde was undergoing chemotherapy to combat cancer that had spread to her spine, lungs, and liver. Nightbirde was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 2017, and while she overcame the disease with treatment, it later reappeared after metastasizing or spreading to other parts of her body. Her doctors gave her only a 2% chance of surviving a few years later, estimating her life expectancy to be three to six months. In 2020, she was cancer-free for the first time in her life, but only for a brief period, since it reappeared in 2021.

“We, her family, are devastated by her passing and unimaginable loss. Many remember her from America’s Got Talent, where she performed her song ‘It’s OK’ and inspired millions of people around the globe with her messages of faith and never giving up. Those who knew her enjoyed her larger-than-life personality and sense of humor. She had a witty joke for every occasion – even if the joke was on her. Her lasting legacy will be the gift of hope she gave to so many through her music and the strength she found in Jesus.” said her family.
