‘AGT’ Judges Blown Away by Cancer Patient’s Moving Gold Buzzer Performance

Zansville, Ohio, native and former Liberty University student Jane Marczewski performed an original song on ‘America’s Got Talent‘ (AGT) Tuesday night and wowed the judges and audience with her voice and story.

The 30-year-old singer goes by the stage name Nightbirde. She shared with the judges and audience that she is a three-time cancer survivor. The song she wrote and performed, ‘It’s Okay,’ poetically tells the story of the last year of her life.

Before her performance, AGT Judge Howie Mandel asked, “Do you sing for a living?”

“Not recently,” Marczewski said, because she has been battling cancer for “quite a few years.”

AGT Judge Simon Cowell asked Marczewski how she is doing now. “Last time I checked, I had some cancer in my lungs, and in my spine, and in my liver,” she replied. Cowell responded with a somber, “Wow,” and Mandel said, “So you’re not okay.”

Inspiringly, Marczewski spoke to the crowd. “Well, not in every way, no…” she said. “It’s important that everyone knows I’m so much more that the bad things that happen to me.”
