Roslyn Singleton, the woman who went viral for her emotional appearances on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” and “America’s Got Talent,” has lost her battle with brain cancer.
Roslyn died at the age of 39 on Tuesday November 17. Her husband, Ray Singleton, who broke the news, said;
“Our wife gained her wings yesterday sleeping peacefully at the house she wanted to be.
“This road ahead is going to be incredibly long and difficult! She taught us all something.
“She is where we are all trying to get to one day, so no need to be sad! Now we celebrate her legacy, her impact, her story and her spirit! She will live on forever.
The couple shot to fame in 2020 when Ray uploaded a video of himself serenading his wife to Daniel Caesar’s “Get You” before she had surgery for brain cancer.
Although he took the video to “make her smile” after she was released from 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 audience to tears as Roslyn admitted she had been “crying since he started” singing.
The North Carolina Navy veteran was first diagnosed with his orange-sized tumor in 2013. She had been in remission for six years when she was diagnosed with another brain tumour.
The Singletons appeared in this year’s OWN network docuseries “Black Love,” which shares love stories from the black community.
