star Nightbirde melted hearts all over the world with her beautiful voice and infectious spirit as she battled stage 4 cancer bravely until the end.
Nightbirde’s family vowed to keep releasing her music, and just released her track “Brave” posthumously, as promised on the late star’s YouTube.
Breast cancer is likely to be more aggressive in younger women and diagnosed at an advanced stage (like Nightbirde’s), as screening for younger women is not standard. Knowing your family history is important.
‘America’s Got Talent’ star Nightbirde melted hearts all over the world with her beautiful voice and infectious spirit as she battled stage 4 cancer bravely until the end. The singer songwriter, born Jane Marczewski, lost her fight in February at 31 years old. Witnessing how much of an impact the young woman had on the entire world—with nearly 44 million views to date on her AGT debut—Nightbirde’s family vowed to keep releasing her music.
Now, fans of the late overnight sensation can listen to a song called “Brave,” that was just released on her YouTube, as promised, by her family.
As Jane’s team and family, we’ve promised we will be rolling out her work to continue her legacy. This Good Friday, we are releasing the “Brave” Live music video on the Nightbirde YouTube.

The Ohio native had explained that she had cancer in her lungs, spine and liver. “You’ve got a beautiful smile and a beautiful glow, and nobody would know,” judge Howie Mandel told her. “Your voice is stunning, absolutely stunning,” said Cowell. “There was something about that song, the way you almost casually told us what you are going through…” He then revealed that he was going to give her the “Golden Buzzer,” which each judge is allowed to use once throughout the season to fast-track a special act. The emotional contestant hopeful dropped to her knees as Cowell went on stage to give her a hug. Ultimately, as Nightbirde continued to advance on the show, she wound up bowing out gracefully as the fight became too much, and decided it was best for her health. She continued to give updates and release poetry and photos on her socials for her millions of newfound friends and supportive fans—and even made a surprise appearance back on the show. Her impression and legacy on this world—and the cancer community—will surely last a lifetime. Nightbirde’s Breast Cancer Battle Nightbirde began her battle with breast cancer in 2017 when a 4-centimeter tumor was discovered in her breast. She underwent six rounds of chemotherapy and a double mastectomy — a surgery to remove the breasts — for treatment. ut her world turned upside down on New Year’s Eve (which also happens to be her birthday) in 2019; she was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer. Her doctors discovered multiple tumors on her liver, lungs, lymph nodes, ribs and spine. She was told she had three to six months to live, but the fighter surprised doctors with her strength. Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women in the United States, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The CDC also reports that breast cancer mostly occurs among older women, but it is possible for women under the age of 45 — like Nightbirde — to be diagnosed with this type of cancer.
