Less than a year after being moved by Nightbirde’s original song, Simon Cowell honored the beloved singer after her passing.

Nightbirde (born Jane Marczewski) auditioned in the 16th season of America’s Got Talent last June, performing her own original song It’s OK, which moved Cowell so much that he gave her his Golden Buzzer.

Unfortunately, Nightbirde announced in August that she had to withdraw from the competition because her battle with cancer was worsening, before passing away on February 19 at just 31 years of age.
