Roslyn Singleton, ‘AGT’ and ‘Ellen Show’ star, dead at 39
Roslyn Singleton lost her fight with brain cancer on Tuesday. She gained notoriety for her poignant appearances on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” and “America’s Got Talent.” 39 years old.
Ray Singleton, her husband, announced the news on Instagram on Wednesday.
He added, “Our wife got her wings yesterday while resting blissfully right at home where she wanted to be.” This journey ahead will be very challenging and long! We all learned something from her.
“Don’t be sad, she’s where we’re all hoping to be one day. We are now celebrating her legacy, impact, story, and spirit! She is immortal,” Singleton continued.
The couple rose to celebrity in 2020 after Ray posted a video of himself singing his wife “Get You” by Daniel Caesar before she underwent brain cancer surgery.
The newlyweds appeared on “The Ellen Show,” and Ray even tried out for Season 16 of “America’s Got Talent,” despite the fact that he only intended for the video to “make her happy” after she recovered from surgery.
The audience was moved to tears by his performance, and Roslyn acknowledged that she had been crying “since he started” singing.
The North Carolina Navy veteran was initially identified in 2013 with an orange-sized tumor. When a second brain tumor was discovered in her, she had been in remission for six years.
The Singletons made an appearance in the OWN network’s “Black Love” docuseries this year, which features love tales from the Black community.
