Roslyn Singleton, a Navy veteran who became a fan favorite on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and America’s Got Talent, died Tuesday after battling brain cancer. She was 39.

Singleton’s husband Ray shared news of her death with his followers on Instagram.

“WELL DONE!! Our wife earned her wings yesterday while peacefully sleeping right at home where she wanted to be,” Ray wrote in the Nov. 16 post. “This road ahead is going to be INCREDIBLY long & difficult!”

He continued, “She taught us all SOMETHING…She’s where we’re all trying to get one day so no need to be sad! Now we celebrate her legacy, her impact, her story & HER SPIRIT! She will LIVE FOREVER!!”

Roslyn Singleton was first diagnosed with an aggressive form of brain cancer in 2013. The disease had gone into remission when she met Ray, and they were married in 2018.

Sadly, the disease would return. In 2020, the couple went viral when Ray posted a video of himself singing Daniel Caesar’s “Get You” to Roslyn before she underwent surgery. The video got so much attention that they were invited to make an appearance on Ellen.

Ray later auditioned for Season 16 of America’s Got Talent, with Roslyn joining him on stage. She told the judges that she had “been crying since he started.”

Earlier this year, the couple appeared on the OWN network relationship docuseries Black Love and talked about dealing with cancer.
