Roslyn Singleton, who went viral for her emotional appearances on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” and “America’s Got Talent,” lost her battle with brain cancer Tuesday. She was 39.

Her husband, Ray Singleton, broke the news Wednesday in an Instagram post.

“Our wife earned her wings yesterday while peacefully sleeping right at home where she wanted to be,” he wrote. “This road ahead is going to be incredibly long & difficult! 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,” Singleton added.

The couple gained fame in 2020 when Ray uploaded a video of himself serenading his wife with Daniel Caesar’s “Get You” before she went into surgery for brain cancer.

Although he took the video to “make her smile” after she came out of surgery, it landed the newlyweds on “The Ellen Show,” and Ray even auditioned for Season 16 of “America’s Got Talent.”

His performance brought the room to tears as Roslyn admitted that she had “been crying since he started” singing.
