“Nightbirde” ~ It’s O.K.!



Jane “Nightbirde” Marczewski became a fan favorite on “America’s Got Talent” when her performance wowed Simon Cowell moments after she shared that she was a cancer survivor on national TV. She speaks with CNN’s Chris Cuomo after deciding to leave the show following a devastating cancer update.

Sadly, Jane passed away on February 19, 2022. She was the best singer I’ve ever seen on AGT. She may have died, but cancer didn’t defeat her. She’s now immortal.


As a very cold and hardened grown man, this woman and this poem brings me to tears. Sad tears and angry tears. But also tears of hope, love, and appreciation for life. May you rest in peace you beautiful soul.

“You can’t wait til life isn’t hard anymore, to be happy.”


That audition moved me to the core of my being. What a beautiful soul, what a life-affirming presence and performance. Her message “You can’t wait til life isn’t hard anymore, to be happy” is something that I will try to remember and take to heart for the rest of my life! ~ Robert Gelblum
